PC Decrapifier - cleans out the stupid free programs you don't want

review from Tiffany, Jan 2007, permalink _ System Maintenance


Hi Clif,


PC Crapifier looks like a most welcome and much needed program, and received rave reviews everywhere from Chris Pirillo to Major Geeks, who rates it "Geek-o-licious"! I know that you understandably like us to try out these programs before recommending them, so I downloaded this one but apparently my computer is so clean already, there was only one program listed (MusicMatch Jukebox). I decided to keep that one, so I end up not removing anything! I do, however, think that a lot of your readers will appreciate this program. Think of "PC Decrapifier" as an automatic garbage cleaner for that brand new computer with the numerous pre-installed "helpful' software programs. You know the ones... like all those "free gifts" that come with a new Dell; AOHell and such. They'll slow your new computer down to a crawl. Even if your computer isn't brand new, but still has some pre-installed garbage on it, you can use it to get rid of some of those difficult to remove, factory-installed applications.

Quote from the website The PC Decrapifier, for Windows XP only, is designed to remove a specific list of unwanted software in an unattended fashion. Before running, the user may select exactly what software should be removed.


Simply download the file, open the zip file and run the EXE. There is no installer necessary. If you have anti-virus software installed, it may complain about this program because it is written with a scripting language. These warnings can be safely ignored. When it runs, it looks for any software that it knows how to remove and presents you with a dialog box:


You may then pick and choose what you want to remove.

It will not begin removing anything without prompting you first! Hit the “Process” button and it will begin cleaning your PC. If it does not find anything a pop-up box will notify you of this and the program will exit and not modify your PC.
