The PC Decrapifier is an app designed to uninstall the programs you don't want on your PC quickly and easily.

Although The PC Decrapifier is designed for new computers, there's no reason not to use it on an older one. It's easy to let hard drives get filled up with unwanted installations, but Windows makes uninstallation a bit of a pain. Instead of uninstalling one by one, The PC Decrapifier tries to automate things, y letting you select multiple applications to uninstall at once.

The PC Decrapifier doesn't need installation. When you open it, you are taken through a step-by-step process, after which the the app closes. The PC Decrapifier first asks you what startup processes you'd like to kill, so your PC opens more quickly, and then you can choose to uninstall any other program on your PC. While it lacks some of the advanced features of Revo Uninstaller, it's quicker and lighter.

Unlike many apps that warn you about deleting things, with the startup process The PC Decrapifier actually gives you a layman's explanation of why you should or shouldn't delete a program. It's not totally automated - once it starts you'll have to agree to each uninstallation, but the process is still quicker and more efficient for multiple apps than in Window's Control Panel.

The PC Decrapifier isn't the most complex or slick looking uninstaller, but it is efficient and effective. Great for multiple uninstallations, and cleaning the rubbish off new PCs.

The PC Decrapifier will uninstall many of the common trialware and annoyances found on many of the PCs from big name OEMs such as Symantec, Dell and Norton products.

PC Decrapifier automatically detects pre-installed components and then allows you to select which ones you want to remove.

The commercial version has the additional ability to automate itself. If you would like to include the PC Decrapifier in another script, you can pass additional parameters on the command line.
