Computer makers more and more have a tendency to pre-load software onto new consumer systems. But all these free trial versions and handy patch monitoring tools in most cases are unwanted and tend to slow down system startup times.
"It’s a very dissatisfying experience to pull a brand new computer out of the box and be spammed with a bunch of trial software," noted one software developer. Instead of dwelling in his dissatisfaction, he want to work and created the "Dell De-Crapifier".
The application promises to remove unwanted software that comes bundled with a new Dell, and it should be easy to create a similar application for computer systems from other vendors.
The Dell De-Crapifier is available for download here.
