Once more we have noticed how companies stuff your laptops with "bloatware" but this time we're not accepting it. I find CCleaner to be a very powerful tool to remove unwanted programs and have started to strip out the shite that infests our latest toy.
We're also not bothering about an anti-virus program as both the free issues of AVG and avast! are now so full of pop adds it has put us right off. We're just going to rely on Windows Defender which, having read up a little on the subject, shows it is just as good as the free anti-virus programs without the annoying reminders and ads.
