The musings of a freeborn Englishman who is totally disenchanted with the dictatorial attitude that poses as democracy.
CleanupRun this program on any new PC to clear out the Bloatware they load it with and which slows down the laptop
TT: Thank you - you are a star!
@ TomTom - I had a look at your link, and notice it says "and the standard uninstaller will launch so that you can remove it"The only problem with this approach is that these frequently leave lots of files & registry keys behind. I use "Revo Uninstaller" (also available as a "portable" version) which then searches for all these leftovers, and helps you remove them.
@ David - what ever you do, and before you start "decrapifying", make sure you either have:1) A full set of recovery discs supplied with your new laptop.2) If not, then follow the instructions to make them. This will (normally) involve several numbered blank DVD's. This is particularly important in case you inadvertently remove a disc "burning" utility...Although it's customary for PC's to have a "hidden" recovery partition on the hard drive, this may not help if something major goes wrong and you can't access it. In such a situation you would insert the first disc, and boot the computer from that. Note that this will almost certainly overwrite your documents and files, so ensure you have these saved on a separate external drive.
md: This is getting scary.....I may just revert to my normal mode of operation - manually delete that which I know what it is and don't want and leave everything else.......
