Startup wages war on PC bloatware

Jumpshot Bloatware Removal Service

One of the more frustrating parts of buying a personal computer comes when you fire it up and realize that the OEM has larded it up with storage-clogging bloatware that degrades your PC’s performance. However, startup Jumpshot thinks it has the perfect solution in the form of its USB stick-delivered software that can comb through your PC for little-used software that nevertheless takes up significant resources when you turn on your machine. Once it discovers this apparent bloatware, it removes its icons from your home screen and prevents it from automatically running whenever you switch on your PC. Jumpshot got its start last year as a Kickstarter project that received funding of more than five times its original funding goal.
