A lot of unneeded programs. I had a lot of search sites, ask.com, Yahoo.com, eBay.com, Bing, Wikipedia.com, amazon.com, etc. I installed Google as my default search since there are 2 Bing searches on http://www.msn.com/. It was extranious junk. On the top row was listed the same there as Favorites Bar. Needless to say they are all gone and the Menu Bar and unchecked Favorites.
I had Blio, Newspaper direct, eBay, another Amazon.com, HP outlook, HP games and I ad a lot of cleanng to do, PDF Complete, Norton, NortnInstallFiles (good for 2 months), Microsoft Office Starter Kit, which was a joke unto itself since it is a trial only, 2 more eBays! and Barnes and Noble. Needless to say, I downloaded Comodo Internet Security, changed it some by disabling Sandbox and Defense+Security was changed into Training Mode. I had to update Adobe,Reader, flashplayer, Air; since Wndows Live Mail was such a problamtic, it was deleted and other items I found that replaced them was Mozilla Thunderbird, OpenOffice.org, some things were unchecked in that. I had an uninstall flashplayer to remove the one in the computer. Under swsetup was in Security was Symantec; under my name, Public was another Symantec. deleted an old Silverlight and installed a later version. A lot was to entice you into buying items.
