So now lets look at cleaning up programs that are not needed that are running when your computer starts up. To Remove unwanted programs do the following:


For Windows XP:

  • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add or Remove Programs.

For Windows 7:

  • Open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features.

Now here is a list of programs that I have removed without customers complaining.

  • Most Toolbars (MSN, Yahoo, Google, Bing, Ask, Coupon Printer)
  • All Versions of Java (If a program needs it it will install it again or ask you to install it)
  • Adobe Download Manager
