PC Decrappifier + Googlepack = New Computer Setup Kit

Dell GirlBoy, I really wish I had found this before I had to unload all the junk on my Dad’s new Dell laptop. PC Decrappifier makes it easy to take out what you don’t want, and make your brand new PC feel — brand new, and not bogged down with bloated software.

In order to keep low production margins profitable, PC manufacturers are now charging software companies for the right to pre-install their products on your new PC for a price. Unfortunately, most of whatever is installed, is absolute junk.

Combine this tool with Googlepack, which makes it easy to add good free software — and you’d have the perfect kit to set up a new computer.

Note: ironically, If you’re viewing this from Malaysia and reading this webpage in July 2006, you’d probably see a Dell GoogleAd on this page.

  1. You should always back up claims like this with a source, otherwise they are just rumours:

  2. I also love the google pack. Just what I need for my computer (and most people’s computers). The other software I found really useful when buying a new computer is called SoftRescue (I think it is just http://www.SoftRescue.com or something close). It allowed me to transfer all my files, settings and even software, like Office and others to my new PC without me having to do it all manually.

    Other software to consider adding if it’s not included on the New PC is antivirus – AVG has a free version, spyware- most people us the free Ad-Aware or Spybot Search & Destroy, and firewall- many free ones out there like ZoneAlarm.
