Software Update: Bulk Crap Uninstaller 4.16

Klocman Software has released version 4.16 of Bulk Crap Uninstaller. Released under an open source license, this program can be used to remove several programs and Windows Store apps from your computer at once. It first performs the standard uninstall procedure and then scans the computer for leftover shortcuts and registry keys to remove those as well. Afterwards, external programs such as CCleaner can also be started. Finally, it includes a start-up manager, which can be used to disable programs that start with Windows. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:
