Ban­ish bloat­ware for good

Windows 7 Help & Advice - - WINDOWS 10 -

If your PC came with Win­dows pre-loaded, then all the bloat­ware that came with it is wait­ing to make a re­turn the mo­ment you re­store Win­dows fol­low­ing your man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions. If you pre­pare prop­erly by fol­low­ing our ‘Per­fect Win­dows Re­in­stall’ guide from is­sue 139, you can craft your own stream­lined Win­dows 10 in­stal­la­tion, free from all those un­nec­es­sary pro­grams and tri­als. If there are pro­grams you will miss – say a DVD Player – then visit the down­loads sec­tion of your man­u­fac­turer’s web­site where you should be able to down­load those in­di­vid­ual ap­pli­ca­tions that you do use (along with all the hard­ware driv­ers you’ll need).
