Tip of the Day

Get rid of annoying programs

  • Kim help! There's a strange toolbar that pops up whenever I surf the web. How can I get rid of it?
  • You've probably installed what's called "bloatware" while downloading legitimate software onto your computer. Bloatware is software that's tucked into other downloads and installs unless you specifically uncheck the box that authorizes it. Luckily, removing this annoying software is simple. In Windows 10, pull up your Apps & Features menu to see a full list of programs. Select the program that's causing you trouble and click Uninstall to remove it. A free software download called Unchecky will automatically scan downloads for unrelated programs, uncheck the box that authorizes them to install and warn you that they're there in the first place. Click here to get the free download appropriately called Unchecky.
