Computers get cluttered and messy just like your car or house. In a car, junk in the engine can kill your gas mileage - the same goes for computers.

One source of clutter on your computer is unneeded programs. Even worse, some programs seem to take over your computer. They hog energy, bug you with dialog boxes or pester you with ads.

Getting rid of unwanted programs helps. But aside from the obvious ones, how do you know which programs you should remove?

Should I Remove It? is a free program that can help you decide. It's as simple as downloading the program and running it. Should I Remove It? will scan your computer and make a list of the installed applications and programs.

Each program will have a status bar ranging from green to red. But be careful! This doesn't automatically mean you must remove the program if it's yellow or red, or that you should keep it if it's green.

Should I Remove It? only tells you what percentage of users opted to get rid of the program or keep it. If a program appears red, it means that most people found it annoying or not useful and decided to erase it.

But it could be a helpful tool when you decide whether you're going to keep a program. Plus, Should I Remove It? includes detailed info on a program's uses and functions.

Perhaps best of all, you can remove most programs from within Should I Remove It? with just a few clicks. If there isn't any easy way, you'll see step by step instructions to remove it manually. Next page: Keep going for Download Link and Instructions.
