Proud owner of a new PC
« on: October 04, 2007, 01:53:55 pm »
So, you're the proud owner of a new PC

New PCs come littered with demoware and ads you never asked for. Does all that stuff affect performance? You bet. Here's how to get rid of the crud--or avoid it in the first place.

I bought a New PC Laptop a few years ago from HP. its been a Great machine. But it came with Junk all over it.

HP isn't the the only company that comes with a bunch of TrialWare and spyware and all sorts of junk. In Fact HP will tell you howto remove it Freely and comes with Free Tech support for life.. Keep in mind I'm not trying to sell a HP.
Just pointing you to a Article by Jon Jacobi n MSN Tech site. 
here's the link.

Please note: If it wasnt for all the Junk they send on a new machine we might end up paying more for the machine Since the Advertisers for these machines pay threw the nose to be on your machine..
YOU do not need to use the programs the computer manufacturer sent with your new machine..
Please read the Full article (9 pages)

This article was originally pointed out to us by "chpalmer" ;D

Thanks

An inconvenience, but if you want to make omelettes, you have to break some eggs.

Where was this 4 years ago when I bought the Dell Desktop,  ::)
It took a long time to search and clean out all that junk they had and then one of my BIL had to go load his junk on it. Sheesh it was so slow I would drink a cup of coffee between clicks.  :bored:
Then when I bought the Laptop, They charged me extra to keep Norton and AOHell off it. It was worth paying to keep the two worse (in my book) off the computer,
Lucky me, My Personal Desktop has a clean (and legal) XP.

But yah know.. no matter how clean you try to keep the machine, One of the users (ahem...you know who I have to deal with) is going to drag it down with a bunch of junk in the start up and then turn right around and complain that the computer is sooooo slow. :P


Oh well.. Good reading artical.. I'll have to keep it in mind should I get a new computer.
