How to get rid of bloatware on a new PC?

What’s the easiest way to get rid of all the unwanted software that comes preinstalled on a new PC? I know that I can go through and manually uninstall each and every thing, but that’s a pain. I certainly don’t want to pay a hundred bucks for someone to do it - thanks but no thanks. Is there a way to just get a “clean” Windows install on a new PC?
There are a few options. You could do a clean install of Windows, you could go through manually and uninstall everything manually, or you could use something like PC Decrapifier. The easiest would be option three, but they all work.

From the PC Decrapifier website:
It's a free tool for you to use that helps remove programs, unnecessary startup items and icons that can slow down your PC. It takes you step by step, giving you recommendations on what to remove, many of which can be removed unattended.
