Default PLEASE HELP. How to PERMANENTLY delete stock apps from device?

Hey everyone.

Sorry if this is an elementary question, but I'm not very experienced yet.

How the bell do I permanently delete a device's stock apps? I have an AT&T HTC One, rooted, and have used ROM Toolbox Pro to delete AT&T's ridiculous apps. And they just appear again.

Any advice? Thanks.

I think this is a 4.4.2 issue. Over here on my Nexus (that I can't wait to get rid of), even with TB uninstalling the apps doesn't do anything. Best option I found was to disable them in the settings.

idk if this will help you but i've noticed that if you update those apps and try to delete it , it'll "delete" but comes back after reboot so don't update any apps you're looking to delete.keep it factory fresh

also since you're rooted try another file explorer that has root..go to the system/app folder and delete and also check data/app folder
