I recently purchased a new Sony Vaio computer and it came with tons of software that I don't want or use. My question is how can I safely remove all these programs? I made a recovery disk and was considering wiping my hard drive and starting all over, but I am not sure that when I reinstall the same programs will come along with the process. I emailed Sony and the automated reader gave me a generic response that did not answer any questions. I really would like to start from scratch and only have what I want on my computer. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.
