These didn't remove preinstalled games
None of the first 4 programs (didn't try Ccleaner) even recognized the dozen games preinstalled on my HP computer. WinPatrol doesn't even seem to have a tab for finding and removing regular applications. SlimComputer has a "Remove" button for Startup Items that does not make it clear that you are disabling them as startups rather than uninstalling them. The default setting on SlimComputer didn't even find any applications when I scanned for those. I had to adjust the settings to the next level. The Info features of these programs, ostensibly there to help you determine the purpose and value of the items you are considering removal of, was only marginally useful. Overall this is a disappointing batch of programs, and that makes this a marginally useful article.
