Craplets

What are craplets?

Craplets are those little unwanted 3rd-party programs that come installed on your Windows computer when you buy it. Arstechnica.com describes craplets:

Just what are craplets? It's a cute nickname for all of the software an OEM installs on your new Windows PC before it arrives on your doorstep. Think: 2 or 3 ISP sign-up applications, instant messengers out the wazoo, and software for updating all of this software. And a lot more.

Craplets are a common problem when buying Windows computers. Cbc.ca recently ran an article on craplets.

More information coming soon, including a craplet database...
