Decrapify Your PC

When you buy a new PC, it always comes loaded with unwanted trialware and applications that you need to "register" (have your credit card ready) to install. The PC manufacturers get paid a commission to load your hard drive with this unwanted crap. Not only does it waste space on your hard drive, but much of it is configured to run something at startup, slowing down your computer.

PC Decrapifier is a free program that can help you remove this crapware. Download PC Decrapifier and save it to your desktop. There is nothing to install, Simply run the exe. Because PC Decrapifier has code that can make changes to your computer, when you run the program, you'll get a User Account Control warning message. Click on the [Yes] button to run PC Decrapifier.

The first screen in the "wizard has a button "check for updates". Another screen asks "are you running PC Decrapifier on a brand new computer out of the box?"
