I have just "inherited" a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop from my brother after he got a Mac and I am trying to configure it to my liking and get rid of the unnecessary programs that my brother left me. When I got my hands on the computer, the first thing I noticed was how slow the startup was and that there were 5+ anti-virus programs. I've removed most of them and kept the ones recommended in the 8 step preliminary program and I am looking for other ways to get the computer faster. I really have no idea what some of the programs left on the laptop are, and I'm sure there are some inefficiences and/or viruses left over. Please take a look at my logs... Thank You! sorry I forgot the logs, here they are.
