The First Thing You Should Do When You Buy a New PC

Bought a new desktop or laptop from Dell, HP, Lenovo or any other popular vendor ?

Thanks to OEM partnerships, chances are that your brand new computer is pre-loaded with tons of trial software, web shortcuts to useless offers (like Free Wi-Fi) and other bloatware that you'll never ever use in future.

While it is not easy for an average user to reformat that hard-drive and do a fresh install of the Windows Vista / XP OS, a nice and effective alternative is PC Decrapifier - this tiny utility will clean your new OEM PC and delete all the unwanted software in one go.

You computer won't just look clean, it will run much faster and you'll have reclaim extra space on your hard-drive to save more interesting things.
