Identify pre-installed CrapWare on a new computer with SlimComputer
“Crapware is also called bloatware or shovelware because computer makers seem to shovel bloated nonsense by the barrelful onto new PCs. There’s a reason for that—crapware offsets the price of super-cheap PC on retail shelves. Even if it’s only by pennies.” – PCMag
If you’ve ever gotten a new PC and it came loaded with promotional programs, toolbars, links to advertising or trial offers, then you know how frustrating these things can be. Community-powered feedback is the key to SlimComputer’s state-of-the-art cleaning. In real time, SlimComputer assesses your new PC to identify programs, toolbars, and startup entries that users vote “optional”. You can then use this data to decide what you want to keep on your computer.
What it does: Wow, new PC, eh? Nothing else like it: slim, sleek, and speedy, with gobs of space just waiting to be filled up. The last thing you’d need would be a system cleaner, right? What if we told you that it could be even slimmer and speedier if you removed some of the junk like software demos and toolbars that comes pre-installed on new PCs? Suppose there were a free utility designed specifically to slim down new PCs by clearing away the stuff you don’t want and won’t ever use before it becomes the computing equivalent of belly fat? Suppose such a tool checked online for user-supplied feedback about programs and applications, to keep your system slender as it grows in size? Let’s call it SlimComputer, because that’s the name of a free tool from SlimWare designed to optimize PCs right from the start. However, it works just fine on not-so-new PCs, too.
