HP sure start and bloat ware

HP Recommended
HP EliteDesk
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am the head of technology in a public school district and I use only Profesional versions of Windows and the amazing, and not in a good way, is how much front loaded bloatware HP computers come with. Because HP continues to have all this preloaded crap, I buy my own versions of Win 7 and Win 10 and do a clean install, that is until Sure Start which won't even allow me to do fresh installs. I have tried to uninstall HP security software, and have tried disabling several HP services, and nothing I have found works! I do not mind using the preloaded OS from HP, but NOT since it comes with garbage like Candy Crush...........COME ON, in a prefessional environment????? And I certainly do not have time to go through each PC and individually uninstall each unwanted program on 60 PC's!!!

 All, all products purchased from any manufacturers come pre-installed with some "bloatware". As for Candy Crush, that gets installed by Windows for most Windows 10 users as it was recently purchased by Microsoft. Hp has no control over this.


Are you really not capable of installing a fresh OS on your computers?
