Manufacturer bloatware and trialware refer to HPs' (like most PC manufacturers) habit of loading crippled versions of commercial software and OEM proprietary utilities on a new computer.
HP like most PC manufacturers engage in the pre-installation of various types of bloat and trialware. Recently, HP released a new service when purchasing a PC (typically for business customers) called HP Premier Image. Premier Image includes the full suite of business software with bundled anti-virus protection, while eliminating trialware and other crapware. The cleaner image eases business computer IT deployment, management and support. This helps with the nags and pop-ups that annoy users with irritating offers for trialware as well as reduction in consumer focused games and the links that promote e-commerce sites including the standard Amazon and eBay desktop links.
