I’m just calling attention to this again, because I so frequently find all kinds of utilities on people’s machines. They don’t know what they are and don’t use them. They come from add-ons to installations.
I wrote about this just under a year ago, in a post titled Security and Performance Tip: Installing Software.
The key message is this: Read all those boxes that come up when you install software. If something is checked, read it, and uncheck it if you don’t want whatever is being offered.
Your computer will perform better!
