    I just received my new Lenovo SL500 with Windows Vista. I want to remove as much of the pre-installed software as I possibly can, including the fingerprint scanner. Can somebody give me a list of all the junk that I can safely remove? It would be a great help. Thank you.

    Everyone's going to answer than question differently. If you're unsure, google it to see if it's something you might want/need.

    you can safely remove all pre-installed software. In fact, you can install a fresh copy of Windows withou harming your laptop.
