    Best way to remove trialware?


    Hello ALL:
    We have a new Windows 10 Pro Laptop to be delivered Friday. It is a 17" HP and know it comes with Office trialware along with AV trialware. We own Office 2016 Pro and want to use it, but I want to just remove all of the junque that it comes with. Should I use Control Panel or a free program like pc decrapifier? Yes I did a search but the answers were older and kind of vague as they dealt with people who tried to install over a trial version.

    I always manually uninstall everything but I have used Revo Uninstaller. It's a free but only uninstalls 32 bit software. The Pro version removes both but it is a pay for.....but does come with a 30 day trail.

    Well, OK, and I guess the control panel does do a bad job of removing all traces. I have used Revo before, but shy away from all of the items they suggest in the registry!

    Great, but is the free version of IOBIT worth a try?

    I don't see that...I do see it's compatible with 64 bit software but no mention of removing it. I also see that it has a portable version.....which is pretty nifty.

    I use the paid version of IOBIT on one computer and the free version on my other computers. The only problem I ever have is when I forget to uncheck the box to install their trial version of Advanced System care. It's very easy to uninstall though.
