    I just purchased a new Toshiba Satellite and would like to wipe everything I don't need off the hard drive before I load up all of my other software. What I am trying to find out is what is the best way to go about erasing all the BS programs that are of no use and just clog up the computer.

    Here is a link to the specs on this laptop.

    just use the uninstaller in the control panel. Most of that BS ware will go away with no challenges.

    Try this free software. Great for cleaning up your hard drive. www.ccleaner.com Defraggler from the same site/company is a good de-frag program also.

    Agreed. Very rarely has pre-installed software not been listed in the standard Add/Remove programs list in the Control Panel (In Windows 7, this is Programs and Features.)

    Just go through that list and you should be able to remove most anything that would not be needed.
