I recently got fed up with the slowness of my PC with it's unbearably long start up times and so on. Determined to do something about it I decided to go ahead and reformat and do a clean install of Windows 7. Afterwords, I followed this de-bloating guide and I must say that I am quite pleased with the results. Reformatting is not necessary to get something out of the guide but I did it anyway. The guide is very simple to follow, I did it with no problems and it took only around half an hour. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get the most out of their PC, or at the very least speeding it up a bit. Kudos to whoever made the guide.
