    Managing privacy and removing bloatware in Windows are two of those important but annoying tasks for keeping a safe and clean system.

    Remember my review of Spydish? It’s one of my go-to utilities for running a quick check on privacy settings. It also lets you thin out some of the less useful apps included with Windows. Do you know anyone still using Zune?

    Recently, we heard that Belim from Mirinsoft was going to add a bloatware extension to Spydish. But apparently, there was a change in plan. Instead, Belim created a standalone gem called Bloatbox.
