What is this bloatware that people often talk of? Third party startup apps i guess? There's no bloatware on a standard install of Windows.
When you buy a PC especially one from a big company then it is not a 'standard' microslop distribution.
If you did not erase the disk and do a clean install from factory CD/DVDs then your do not have a clean install free of the crapware.
The sellers load it up with all sorts of 'free' trialware , on top of all the useless crap that windoze has running for their social media devices that are not really useful PCs for audio until you clean them up. The public may choose to buy them because they get the 'free' stuff too.
Check out some PC/audio sites and see the things suggested to tweak or remove before using it for audio.
And see how to use it too. Some people keep their surfing and antivirus open all the time and wonder why they have problems. Some let the useless aps call home when they feel like it to cause noise or other problems. Do you really need your weather ap to update while you are tracking?
You need to get off the internet and kill your antivirus from running along with every other program that may decide to wake up and try to run while you are using the PC for audio.
