PC manufacturers most often pack the computers they make with programs that you didn’t order or even those that you might not even want. Most of these programs are actually trial versions that software companies hope you’d try, find useful and pay for the full version or a newer version in the long run.

Having these programs on your computer doesn’t mean that you have to like them and keep them on your machine. You can actually decide to remove them if in case you don’t want any of them to be running on your machine or in case the trial version expires. Keeping these programs on your machine may slow it down because of the system resource space that it uses up which directly affects your machine’s performance and processing power.

It is therefore a good idea that you uninstall these programs that you don’t really need or use at all. This action should include some programs installed by your manufacturer as well as those that you installed yourself but decided you don’t want or need it at all especially those utility programs which are designed to run in the background.

These programs need to be uninstalled to free up more disk space as well as system resource that are secretly chugged down while these utility programs are running in the background. Some examples of utility programs are virus scanners, internet security scanners, registry boosters etc. To disable these programs, just follow these steps:

  1. Click on the “Start” button.
  2. Click “Control Panel”
  3. You will then arrive at the Main Control Panel Window. Look for the “Uninstall a program or Programs” link and click it.
  4. A Window showing you the list of programs installed on your computer will appear. Search for the program that you want to uninstall, click on it then click the “Uninstall” tab on top of the list.
  5. To complete the process, the system might ask you to restart your machine. Reboot your machine in case a prompt appears telling you to do so.

Your computer is a precious piece of machine that can do a lot of tasks efficiently if you maintain it properly. Be sure to regularly monitor the programs that are installed on your PC to make the most of the hardware power that you actually paid for when you purchased your machine.
