Bloatware removal on new Acer Aspire laptop

LukesMama 3,576 4,442 May 17, 2012 at 07:34 PM
I just purchased an Acer Aspire 5750Z-AS4835 Laptop and want to remove anything that is not necessary, but I am not familiar with what is okay to remove and what is not. Could someone offer me some direction on what I can safely remove and what, if any, program is the best to use to do this?

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up.
Bear in mind that what is considered bloatware today, doesn't necessarily need to be uninstalled, as long as you can stop it from running in the background in "Services".
I always turn of "Windows Search"(disable), "Windows Updates"(disable) (some folks disagree with me about turning them off), "Defender"(disable), Error Reporting"(disable), "Windows Media Player Sharing"(manual), "Windows Live"(manual), to name a few.
If you'd like to post screenshots of the processes running in Task Manager, I'm sure we'll find a few more that could be shut down.
