I have used The PC Decrapifier, several times. It can be a little agressive on an OEM machine. So double check the entries before removing them. But in my opinion it's one of the easiest and most comprehensive free tools available to clean out bloatware.

Others may have their personal favorites.

revo is another bloatware removal app that is esteemed. I have been reading the BC topics about users deleting this OEM Bloatware, and remnants being left behind in registry and clogging up boot. efficiency.

I tried decrapifier on a new OEM machine and it worked wonderfully. I tried revo also and my vote goes to decrapifier because it is much more intuitive.
