Decrapifier, lol.

 

Or you could manually do it and remove only the apps you know you won't use.

Gigawert, have you ever used PC Decrapfier?

 

It IS an excellent program.

 

Download, install, run.

 

If running on a new out-of-the-box system, it will ask you if it is for a NEW computer.

 

Answer: yes, and it will present a list of all the pre-installed junk.

 

All one has to do is choose which junk to uninstall and it will be done. The great thing about PC Decrapifier is that you can choose MORE than one program to uninstall and it will do it without the need to remove them one by one using Add Remove programs or Revo Uninstaller or any other uninstaller.

 

I have used it many times when I had to take my laptop back to factory conditions. Works like a charm every time. I've recommended it to others.

 

The only other thing I can say is if asked to reboot after a program is uninstalled, say NO. Let it continue. When done, reboot.

I've heard of it and tried it, but I did not really need it for anything.
