    you shouldn't have to enter a key, but since it is telling you to, make sure that you are entering an OEM key and not the key on the bottom of your laptop

    Very good, Serg. You only missed one part of bloatware's definition: the fact that it's factory installed programs *that the user doesn't want*. The problem (which is what my question is) is that there is rarely enough information for even an informed user to decide, for themselves, whether or not they want a factory installed program. Most people end up relying on the judgment of others without knowing what that judgment is based on-but I don't like doing that. I prefer to make my own decisions.

    I appreciate all the information about how to remove the bloatware, as well as the help in finding some of it that isn't obvious, but I'd like to know what it does before I remove it. Do you know of a thread that actually does that?

    thanks.

    EDIT: updated guide, added notes next to the bloatware list about what they do

    I guess they need to update the info at revouninstaller.com. Thanks for confirming that it works.
