Lenovo Bloatware

Manufacturer bloatware and trialware refer to Lenovos' (like most PC manufacturers) habit of loading crippled versions of commercial software and OEM proprietary utilities on a new computer.
Lenovo computers come pre-installed with software that you may not need. This often includes trial versions of anti-virus software, various security software such as facial-recognition, pc optimizations programs, backup apps, dvd burners and media players. This software, also known as bloatware, slows down your brand new computer and uses valuable resources.
