Dealing with Bloatware Can be a Giant Pain in the Neck

Dealing with Bloatware Can be a Giant Pain in the Neck

Purchasing new technology sure is exciting… until you realize that it comes preloaded with loads of software that not only slows your device down but could also be harmful or irritating to deal with. What can you do about this unneeded and unwanted software? We recommend that you read this blog to find out.

Defining Bloatware

Bloatware is considered any application pre-installed on your device that is not installed by the user, including things like free trials of software, that are used to get people to consider applications they might not otherwise have any interest in. It’s a method used by software developers to sell their software. Bloatware can also consist of system utilities and applications included with your operating system.

All that said, bloatware can cause your technology to function poorly, and it can create issues upon startup, making it take longer to be productive in your duties. Plus, all of these unwanted software solutions can take up loads of storage space. Bloatware is essentially an inconvenience, and if you don’t take control of it, it could become both a nuisance and a danger.

Sometimes bloatware can be threatening to the user, as evidenced by the Lenovo man-in-the-middle attack some time ago. Remember that bloatware is software, and as such, it needs to be updated. If it’s not, it could put your systems in harm’s way.

Sometimes bloatware also goes the route of adware, allowing manufacturers and developers to profit off the user. Thankfully, there are ways to get around the issues of bloatware by doing what you would with any normal software you don’t want: uninstalling it.

Removing Bloatware from Your Devices

It can be challenging to determine what is bloatware and what is not. You certainly don’t want to delete an application that is important for your operating system or for your productivity. We recommend that you consider deleting bloatware if it is interfering with your productivity, but what’s the best way to do so?
