    Inborn apps? Are those apps whose parent processes are too closely related?

    I think what the OP is asking is how to rid a new computer (or maybe a smartphone) of pre-loaded applications. Is that correct panpan?

    Welcome to the forum.

    I believe the proper term is bloatware, or crapware. "Bloatware" is ambiguous - it's really aimed at applications with tons of rarely used features. It can't be eliminated without eliminating the good stuff too. The crippled apps that ship with PCs and phones are paid advertising and I know it as crapware.

    No idea if that fit's the OP's notion of "inborn apps".

    I consider them "stillborn apps".

    Considering the relationship between the app writer and the device vendor, "inborn" may actually be a reasonable term. :D

    I assumed he meant apps installed by the cellphone vendor as part of their firmware that you can only remove by rooting the phone

    You're probably right, I've heard all the Android "enhancements" added by the cellphone companies tend to uglify the interface.

    Spam post? Maybe it was supposed to have a link to an antivirus website?

    I have no experience with smartphones; with computers, I build my own to avoid the problem. I have tried to rid computers of bloatware, but it's a tedious process...just removing one app at a time. Sorry, I can't help.
