I have just bought a new Sony VAIO laptop which came in with a lot of different VAIO programs on it. Gaming was the main reason for buying this baby, so I thought I should keep it as clean as possible, since I will never use any of the fancy features VAIO provides (and quite frankly, I am a neat freak, so having all these programs would make me paranoid about slowing my cpu).
I am currently following these steps highlighted here http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Crapware-Bloatware-from-Your-Windows-Computer to remove all unnecessary programs (including swapping over the anti viruses).
The main question being; is it safe to blatantly remove all VAIO programs through add or remove programs feature? I am afraid some of them might be important for windows and by removing them I would cause more issues (example- VAIO Wireless Easy Connect/Smart Network. Im more than happy to have a standard windows option tool, so would I be ok if I delete VAIO one?)
Once again, thanks for your time, and sorry if I confused anyone. Have a nice day.
P.S. I also do not intend on using Bluetooth, thus would it be safe to remove "Bluetooth Win7 Suite (64)"?
