What do dump on new Win7 system and I believe it will have 64 bit OS. My friend wants to simply his time at the computer. All she is interested in is writing her book and email access. What do you folks recommend getting rid of and how do you recommend getting the best performance with this new computer with Win7 pre-installed? Thanks much for your assistance and knowledge.

you will need an email client, outlook or some other..
you can clean out all the manuafacturers added bloatware, for the rest you can leave win 7 to do its job, if its reasonable spec you will not need to speed it up, stay away from registry editors andf speedup programs.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

The following is understandable
'What do you folks recommend getting rid of and how do you recommend getting the best performance with this new computer with Win7 pre-installed?'

Check the startup items and remove whatever doesn't have to run at startup. You need your AV to run plus the task scheduler.

Use an AV like Avast free for good protection online.
Use a good software like MS Office for the writing...I would NOT suggest Open Office...to me it's a cheap nightmare.
For e-mail I would suggest yahoo instead of Outlook Express, Outlook, etc
To make yahoo default mail, just download the latest yahoo toolbar and be SURE to check where it says make yahoo the default mail. Then you can uninstall the toolbar.

I did a lousy job of describing what I wanted to uninstall on a new computer. I said "what do"...when I meant to say," what to dump". I have to slow down. XPUser, what do you mean by task scheduler? You're not referring to the dialog box that you get when you do a Cntrl, Alt, Del are you? Thanks for the advice.

I appreciate the link. I downloaded Malwarebit and CCCleaner and have speeded up this computer quite a bit.
