When you buy a shop brought PC all that software does cost something its not free, thats why so many do build there own computer. Its not hard and you end up knowing that the hard drive you paid for is full of software you need.

Thats what I did with my first PC.

I built it, I broke it, I fixed it lol.

Just the price was cheaper than what I could do by buying the components.

The first thing I do, and advise others to, is uninstall McAfee or one of the others usually loaded on the PC. I wish they'd ask before adding all the rubbish.
