Clean Windows Setup

So i was watching a video today where they went through setting up and cleaning a windows installation, and man i thought i really want to do this. 

My PC and Laptop just get so cluttered with apps and just so many things, so when i have some spare time... I am going to do this. 

Surely i cant be using all of these apps!

Lets get cleaning.

Now to list all the apps that i actually use before reinstalling. I will note the reinstall process here.
