Most will come with pre-loaded Kodi. Just uninstall it.
#2
Yeah as above just factory reset or uninstall the apps
#3
Most them if you do a factrory reset end up with Kodi on. Unistall is the best way.
I've never known anybody to want an Android box without using Kodi lol

Install an app like Titanium Backup from the playstore and delete everything you don't want. I take it you just want to use it as a mini PC/media player right?

All the uninstall from a device ideas are in theory good but it depends if it is bound to the rom as a preloaded app or simply added to the system after being produced,removing an app in a rooted product which it is bound to the rom has as I have seen before had profound affects on stability of the operating system, it will occasionally kill the boot up process and will need to be factory reset and that leaves the app remaining every time.The user mentioning titanium-backup is theoretically right,but you risk a black screen on rebooting if it acts up after uninstalling,titanium backup is for rooted devices as well. And because it's end user damage could maybe void the warranty if it didn't restore although in theory it should.pre-rooted devices personally are my preference to buy as they are basically open to all types of repair and modification as rooting is basically giving administrator privellages to android os,also if you have a new box always put it in usb debugging mode by unlocking developer options first if you want some guarantees on recovering it if it goes down,although others may argue the merits of debugging and rooting I have never had a security issue occur on 1 box the same goes for allowing unknown sources as well for installing sideloaded third party software.

personally i would buy a tegra based device if your budget allows it, because they are the tippy top of all android gaming media playback in theory, this is because they have the best mobile graphics and cpu soc (processor and graphics combined chip) on the planet as yet.If you want cheap go with an m8s or it's successor the m8s weighs in at just £39.99 average and has a built in chromecast style dlna device, wireless n, bluetooth and sd card slot, this is how they are reflashed as well, they do come in cloned models so look for an official version. I once put a alternate product rom on one of these clones it was a reliable and very snappy piece of kit, 3 people I know have them and are impressed by them, The very best has to be the shield android tv, but this android tv os has not that many games yet but will have if it stays around, chances being it will be in most tv's eventually when buying new ones, and if so the archive of apps and games will go into overdrive.The shield tv averages £149 for a 16gb model and £219 for a 500gb hybrid hard drive model that has a hard drive that is partially ssd, both of those have voice control youtube searching and should eventually obtain if not having already voice web browser searching to. This is via the gamepad controller which is bundled in both packages,with the £219 500gb pro version it has a smaller media remote which also voice controls and has a headphone jack to listen to system in privacy the both of the models game controllers also has the headphone jack for private use as well.
