The title of your topic indicates you want to know how to clean up the computer. Your actual question is about security/other programs.

Is this a used laptop? If it is do you also want to clean it?

Hello and Welcome -
Please read these 2 items first >> Choosing an Anti-Virus Program
>> Supplementing your Anti-Virus Program with Anti-Malware Tools
These and much more information is listed above this forum area as "Pinned" topics for your reading and contain very good advice

If you think that the laptop that you have been given is already infected, Please repost in Am I Infected or Malware Removal areas of the forum for direct help -
Read the Introduction Articles there and only post information that is requested, nothing else -

Thank You -
