Question Debloatware vs O&O ShutUp10 - Which one to use?

O&O ShutUp10
has been a very helpful piece of freeware but after listening to Chris Titus talk about a free De-Bloat script or app (whichever you prefer), i'm debating as to which would be best option security and optimized system wise?

Personally, I don't recommend either of them. It's too easy to forget which tweaks you did. Then, a month down the road you try to install something or a windows update fails, or something else happens and tracking down the issues become near impossible.

The only way I'd consider either of them is if I did an image backup before using them and had it saved as a fall-back.

I agree 100%. These things are designed to function on a new Windows system before anything else has been added to it in which case they can be just a minor disaster. Installing one onto a system that's been in use for a while invites a major disaster.

Simple truth if Windows is this much of a problem to use, don't.

Have been using O&O Shutup10 practically from day 1 with recommended selections and it hasn't given me any issues thus far.

Linux distros (not all) like recent MX KDE beta1 has been a blessing 'cause it is just good!
