    Yes, when you buy an OEM computer, you take it like they program it, with all the warts and wrinkles.

    Then it's up to you, or a technician setting up the PC, to clean out all the Crapware that is installed at the factory.
    Some of that stuff, can even be Spyware, like the "Wild Tangent Games". Get rid of those ASAP.

    You can't believe, all the crapola that I take off of brand new PC's.
    It's criminal, for PC makers to put that stuff on a brand new PC.

    So, it's up to every Computer Tech, to de-crapify every PC they work on. Call it a public service!
    It's what I do!

    Happy Holidays Mates!
