Some of the bloatware listed is Conduit, MyFreeGames, OpenCandy
I've been trying to figure out whether Dexpot is safe to install; but since someone said it's is an opinion-based question, I'll be more specific:

What is the malware's payload? Would it do something as malicious as install a keylogger or steal a credit card?
Can the malware be removed?
