My Thoughts on PC Decrapifier

PC Decrapifier is centered around the idea of removing programs that come preinstalled after you've just purchased a new computer. Many of the preinstalled programs can be removed quickly and automatically so you don't have to click through any prompts. But it can also be used for removing other programs manually, which is good.

While testing PC Decrapifier, I was able to have it remove two programs consecutively without prompting me at all, and these programs were not preinstalled to my computer. This means the automatic feature works for regular programs you install as well as the ones that may have come by default with your computer.
