I always buy a copy of windows to install onto a new laptop. Their pre-installed windows is usually polluted with crap that doesn't work all the way. I understand the reason they (the laptop manufacturers) do it, but they should also provide a restore point that allows you to eliminate the crap-ware in one fell swoop instead of forcing you to either a) delete each crap-ware package one at a time, or b) force you to do it the way I do it - with an unfettered copy of Windows (which takes a LOT less time).

Some years ago (XP days?) I had a Norton infestation. They actually had one good and useful (free) product. A "remove everything Norton" tool. No idea if it's still there, but it might be worth a look.

That was when he was an elite programmer/writer/teacher. Now he's a rich company owner, what did you expect? Also, I bet he's not remotely involved in the software design/functionality - probably spends most of his time in his beach mansion on some fancy pacific island.
I was on the support team at Symantec when they released Norton Utilities v.3 for Windows 95. I always felt bad for the callers who were mystified that after installing the entire product they could not find their deleted files in the recovery tool. They didn't read the manual; didn't use the floppy boot disk DOS-based recovery tool. Oops...
