This is a laptop used by a local non-profit organization. The only software that really needs to be on it is QuickBooks and Microsoft Office. It is painfully slow and seems to freeze up often so I tried to uninstall some of the software that I thought was useless (Bing, Google Desktop and Google bar) and the computer wouldn't boot up so I had to go through the repair process to recover. Now I'm afraid to do anything because of that and I don't want to destroy any of the data on the computer.
The previous user said it had never been connected to the internet so there have been no updates since 2008. It has McAfee Security Center installed but it is out of date and the license has expired. There just seems to be a lot of unless software on this computer but this may have been part of the original configuration.
Computer is a Toshiba, Model Satellite A200, Windows Vista Ultimate, 32-bit, 1014 MB Ram, Dual CPU 1.75 GHz.
Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
