    it usually always depends. what do u have? most programs have an uninstall file... but by uninstalling it, sometimes may affect the configuration of the system... the best way, is to do a clean install. reinstall the OS and then just put the programs that you want on it...

    PC Decrapifier is a pretty popular tool for removing all that bloatware nonsense. http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/

    If it's Windows, which I guess it must be if it's full of crapware, you often get a OS restore disk that doesn't have all the 'free' crap on it. If that's the case, you can just reinstall your OS.

    There's always this http://www.ubuntu.com/ That'll remove every bit of crapware from your new PC, including Windows. @et Sorry, I didn't read your post properly before I made mine ~ you'd pretty much said the same thing already.

    Hey Carl, no problem... i see there is version 11.04 'Natty Narwhal' out. I still have maverick10.10 Virtual Machine, upgraded from 8.04, not that long ago. I don't know what is the point of keeping up with the latest though. Plus it's just more ware and tare on the hard drive...

    do NOT waste your time uninstalling it... simply get yourself an OS Installation disk... Delete current partitions, re-create new partition, format, AND INSTALL the OS!!!!! an operating system installation will NOT have any of that crappy trail software on it!!!
