Since the update to kitkat i have not able to remove bloatware apps like in jelly bean.

I have been able to remove apps like:
PressReader
Amazon Kindle
Zinio Reader
more of that type....

But the apps that i'm not able to remove is apps like:
ASUS Webstorage (Seriously, webstorage is so bad, slow and unsupported around the web that it's useless)
Google+ (I don't use social media)
Google Play Books/Movies (Not using it)

Some ASUS apps like Story and Mirror is easily removeable..

Has anyone had any luck uninstalling those apps? If so how?
Any help is appreciated!

Edit: By the way, i am rooted and still cannot delete it.

I rooted on jellybean, not yet on kitkat. But let me understand. You find the right .apk, you delete it, but after that it is still there, so won't delete, or you cannot find the right .apk, therefore you cannot delete?

When i try to delete it on KitKat, the app i use to delete it with (which has root access) just tells me it failed to uninstall the app. I don't know why.

Yes i did find the right apk.

As a suggestion, you can try a different file manager, more powerful, like ES file explorer or other....
Or, before you can delete a background running system apk, you first have to stop it and disable, then you can delete.
Be careful not to delete system core apps....
