When you buy a new branded computer whether desktop or laptop, it usually comes packed with pre-installed trial software that you do not really need. This software just takes up space on your hard disk and sometimes interferes in the normal working of your PC. You can manually remove this unwanted software from your PC or you can use PC Decrapifier to automatically get rid of such software.
PC Decrapifier is a free tool that can help you to remove programs, unnecessary startup items and icons that can slow down your PC. It takes you step by step, giving you recommendations on what to remove, many of which can be removed unattended. You can download and install it from the PC Decrapifier website. After the installation, you can run it from its start menu shortcut.
PC Decrapifier shows a wizard to guide you through the steps. After the initial welcome screen, you are shown an option to create a System Restore point. This can be useful to recover from an unexpected error. Although using a restore point will not bring back any removed programs, but it can restore any important files that might be missing.
In the next screen, you would be shown a list of items it detects on your system which should be removed. You can deselect any item that you think should be left on your computer.
Clicking on the Next button would take you to the next screen which shows a list of all the installed software on your computer. Here you can select if you want to get rid of any installed software (for example, trial versions of antivirus or Microsoft Office).
This time when you click the Next button, PC Decrapifier would start removing the unwanted software from your PC. During the process, you might see some prompts pop up asking you to confirm removal.
PC Decrapifier is a very easy to use program that is specially useful for removing unwanted bundled software from brand new computers. By removing such bundled software from your PC, it not only makes your PC faster but also recovers your valuable hard disk space. At the same time, it is worth mentioning that PC Decrapifier is only for advanced users only. Beginner Windows users might end up removing some important piece of software inadvertently.
