Why doesn't Install wim tweak remove packages?

It says it's removed them, but the files are still in the WinSXS and it still lists the same packages as being installed after using the /r command on about 100 packages.

I've commited, and exported the wim and it's still not gone. :/

if u want to remove winsxs as well and still have the aero

Have you removed them off- or online? The Scavenging cleans the files later. In Win8 you can force the Scavenging with a DISM command.
