[7] Clicking 'Next' ends the installation WITHOUT Bloatware.

(Added): Even doing this. the installation leave some .lnk direct acess files associated to the UNINSTALLED software Picosmos Picture Tools in the OS. Apart from that, the only software installed is FortmatFactory and nothing else.

They have an Online Installer, that probably includes the same, or more, needless stuff, but I didn't tested it.
