Oh the writer is SO dead-on.
My Duo needs a ground-up re-install of the OS and drivers.

Even after cleaning all the junk out something is still messing with the way it runs.

I dont disagree with him, I must say but it isnt that hard to get rid of it, and it acts like a free upgrade

My fix?

Back up drivers and then install a fresh copy of windows.

as in the words of Jeff Dunham: "BEGONE SATAN!"

Bloatware is a pain.
