You know how retailers install all that bloatware on retail laptops.
I assume you can just uninstall it right?
I mean have any of you ever had problems when uninstalling the crap they dump on the system before you buy it?
It's not normally the retailers that do it. It's normally the manufacturers (for instance, Dell 'recommend' Tiscali broadband according to the software preinstalled on their laptops in the UK).
You can usually uninstall all of it on an individual basis in the Add/Remove programs page.
And in case that wouldn't work, this should help.
