Programs you CAN live without(30 posts)
Those programs that insert themselves into the systray and start menu (most do that, but some pleasantly don't). That's the first thing I check (with WinPatrol and then use it to disable all that start up nonsense) after an install.
Vendor crap that comes preinstalled on a machine . . . Dell is notorious for this, like "Dell Support", which starts up with the machine and has no option to disable it from doing that (infuriating). HP does a lot of this also. If you need support from the vendor you can go to the vendor's web site just as easily. That preinstalled vendor crap is mostly just a marketing ploy and very often is used to convince you that you have to buy more vendor crap.
Can you tell that I don't like vendor crap?
wow that is shocking. i do agree with the all that smaple stuff that microsoft gives.. i.e sample pixs, sample vids etc. some of the programs like winrar and adobe on the other hand i find quite usefull and easy to use.
Regarding WinRAR, notice that the person who nominated it said this:
trial WinRAR, preloaded, then says "your trial ran out 347 day/s ago" click continue then your done?
So, that's a complaint about unwanted software pre-loaded on a system.
For those with Firefox and a loathe of toolbars, Random Site! is a semi-adequate replacement for Stumble until they publish a toolbar-less button.
