Computers get cluttered and messy just like your car or house. In a car, clutter can kill your gas mileage. When it comes to computers, clutter can slow it way down.
One source of clutter is unneeded programs. Even worse, some programs seem like they “take over” your computer. They might bug you repeatedly 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 download that can help you decide. Just download the program and run it. It will scan your computer and make a list of the installed applications.
Each program has a bar ranging from green to red. 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 programs’ uses and functions.
