Oh Whoah... now I've REALLY done it !

I installed and ran PCdecrapifier. Then I ran Privacyeraser Pro, then, Ccleaner, then a hard boot, to ensure (that) I have really killed some stuff.

A lot of the stuff , I didn't have a clue about. Just took wild crazy guesses.
Mostly, I got rid of anything that was HP.

What an absolutely and dangerous knife, that was.

I haven't had so much fun for ages !

Sometimes cleaning up the preinstalled factory bloatware damages System files worse than having the crap installed. So run SFC -SCANNOW Command.

In what way is the tutorial too much? We're here to answer questions if you need it.

I ran CHKDSK. But a real big scan.
A scan to detect any problems and to fix them.
It took oh sooo long.

Now, my computer is running at lightning speed.
I have never ever seen my computer run so fast.

I ran privacy eraser pro, and then Ccleaner, and they ran so fast it was scary.
My PC boots fast and shuts down fast.

Now, something has happened..I don't know what it is, but the speed is phenomenal.
