I am not sure where to post my question so I am posting it here. I would like to find out all the steps necessary for proper removal of ads and trial software which comes with new pc. I am afraid that I will get rid of part of the software while leaving the rest as garbage on the hdd. For example I tried removing office word 60 day trial via add/remove programs and although the software seemed to be removed one icon was still left on the desktop. When I double clicked that icon it still starts the instalation. Just want to be able to get rid of all the junk.

Try to run this program which should do the trick as far Office is concerned. What kind of security software do you have installed on your computer

Below is some info on a program that will remove the annoying extras on a new computer. It was designed with Dell in mind but it will work on others as well.
