      it should be illegal to use my storage space for free
      what if I charge them $1000/1GB/month for storage? I agreed to install the software, not store their installers from 2019 that they hide deep inside my windows installation

        PEBCAK

        PEBCAK too.

        adobe also does this shit, but it wasn't 12 fricking gigabytes and I forgot to take a screenshot

        Stop pir8ing Adobe

        it shouldn't be tbh. i'm too lazy these days but i used to do a fresh windows install on any device i bought to get rid of the bloatware

        these days i only buy from pawn shops and they already do that shit for you, worst case it comes with Foxit or some boomer shit like that

        If you buy from pawnshops and accept what the install you're extratarded and deserve the abuse

          PEBCAK but the problem is sitting in razer's office, has a silly job title like "product manager" and it deprioritized fixing such "minor technical debt" as STORING BIG ASS TEMPORARY FILES IN THE WINDOWS DIRECTORY and then NEVER DELETING THEM

    Or you know, you could just NOT track people on every website then you wouldn't need that banner. Mutts are really that dumb

      The GDPR was deliberately designed to derail that conversation. Instead of debating what companies should be allowed to track, the stupid popups coercively manufacture consent.

          which is aganst the consent law, as the accept and reject button should have the same prominence and amount of clicks.

      Oh yes, it was totally made to protect us. Big corporations are sooo mad the "anticookies" law allows them to torture people who delete their cookies. Just click on "reject cookies" and don't delete your cookies anymore, schizo, they're totally not going to track you with that cookie you're literally forced to have now haha.

    "C:windowsinstaller" for uninstalling components, it will give you an error message if you remove them and try uninstalling the bloatware, this is why MSI packages suck

      It should, to raise awareness. I don't even use it, but my hibernate file was taking up tons of space. Which I only noticed with WinDirStat.

      "I still don't care about cookies" + "Cookie AutoDelete" means I don't even see cookie banners, and cookies will be deleted after closing a site's tabs unless I put the site on my White or Grey list.

      The intention of the law is what, exactly? To make it absolutely clear that the EU only exists to serve our american overlords?

          The fine for a minor violation is 10 million euro, can be *raised* up to 4% of the company's revenue. A fine starting at 10 million euro would destroy any small company, yet the biggest fine ever imposed for Meta was 1 billion euro, literally less than 1% of Meta's revenue. If you think they made this to protect you, you're unironically moronic.
