Bloatware is basically software that consumes lot of space as well as RAM to run and install. Since the disk and RAM has reduced there has been an increase in the developers as far as ignoring size of applications is concerned and the output is bloated software. This is also known as crapware as it consumes lot of resources. Do get rid of this from the new PC so that it can be used to the full potential.
Even the manufacturers do install some bloatware on new PC s as they are paid for it. As the profit margins are low, providing PCs with junk installed gives manufacturers some more money. On a lighter note, it would give you a cheaper PC.
It uses up the system’s storage. It loads at the startup, increases PC boot time, cluttering system, desktop with several application and context menus and misusing RAM. Many such software are terrible. You would find several antivirus programs which try to scare by informing you that the PC is in danger, would show ad filled games that you do not want to play and trial programs which give you a single hour prior to becoming useless. However not every program is worthless. The tools which should not be deleted are the ones which are needed for hardware.
Windows bloatware is confined to the desktop. It loads at the startup and fills system tray. This appears in the form of preinstalled Windows store apps. The ones that come in the form of metro apps are useless though better than that on desktop. These types would not be able to run in the background and slow the system.
You can get rid of this from new systems which have reset and refresh options. These restore OS to a fresh condition. You can easily reinstall Windows this way. However these options would not remove this application. The system would restore all junk. As a user you can create own custom recovery images. As you get new one just get rid of this and create custom refresh image.
There are several utilities which would help you fight this. You can also remove as you do with any other application. Open Control Panel and check the programs which have been installed. You uninstall the ones which you do not require. This should be done soon after you get a new system.
Check the programs running in the background from the system tray. It would also aid in you searching for useless programs. If it is uninstalled it has no chances to come back. If you are doubtful just conduct a Google search. You would also get removal guides.
Several technical experts perform a clean Windows install on new PCs. Instead of getting rid of that particular program just start from step one. This is a good technique but is time consuming. You just require a Windows disc. Insert installation media in to the system as well as reboot.
Manufacturers these days do not include any installation media with computers. Even if they do it is that bloatware. So you can download this media. After installation of Windows you can use the same product key which came with the machine. There are several systems which come with product keys in it and the key should be automatically entered when you are installing Windows 8. Whenever you get a new PC installed do reinstall Windows immediately.
The other job is installing hardware drivers. Windows would do this automatically but not everything would be installed. By visiting hardware manufacturer’s site, you can download apt drivers.
