    The easy way is to create your recovery disks and restore your computer and most of it will be all gone.

    I just went through Programs and Features and uninstalled a bunch of stuff I didn't think I needed (after I knew what they did first) like the Microsoft Office free trial and the Norton trial, and a bunch of other stuff like that.

    I also got rid of all the stupid Acer GameZone games. Had to remove each one individually because there's no option to remove the Acer Game Zone, I don't think.

    Just make sure you don't uninstall anything important like, eRecovery or eAudio or something. Although you could probably get those back easily enough...
