It is quite normal to find programs that were installed some time before the date of purchase of a new machine, it just menas that may be the latest level at the time your laptop was built. When you go to run these programs if there is a later level you are usually prompted to update it. As far as the photos is concerned, do you mean you deleted old ones and they are still showing in a hard drive folder that you previously created ?
BTW - you will find with a new laptop a lot of software installed that you are very unlikely to want or use which has become known as "bloatware". It is recommended that you uninstall most of this to allow your system to run at its best.
