The new security tip is to only install on your computer what you need to complete what you do.
Having programs that you never use or that you installed with the “one day I may use them ” can lead to leaving yourself open to vulnerabilities.
Uninstall what you don’t need or do not use and make sure ALL traces are gone.
For this on Windows I recommend Geek Uninstaller as the program uninstaller with Windows leaves ” residue” behind.
On a Mac I recommend App Cleaner as installing some free programs or installing programs that you do not use can lead to slow downs and corruption of the browsers.
