If you're still running the HP preinstall that is the worst load of corrupting bloatware in the industry. No tech enthusiast would run such an install, but instead most all will Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
to get rid of the Bloatware that throttles Win7 native performance.
At least I would Clean Up Factory Bloatware
to turn off all the crap starting on the back of Win7, most of which is useless suplicate utilities/spyware that have better versions built into Win7.
