Alternatively referred to as bundle ware and pre-installed software, bundled software is any software that is included with a new computer, hardware, or other software program. This bundled software is included at no additional cost to the user and is used to help promote the software with demos of the actual program. In some cases, it may be full versions of programs, but often is trial programs that expire after so many days or is limited versions of the actual program.
