Hi all. I've been searching and trying to find ways to fix this problem for months, so will now stop and ask for directions. I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it. I used to use it in my corporate environment but left the company, and they allowed me to keep the laptop for personal use. I now want to get rid of the drivers
, IIS and other elements I no longer need and that slow down the system (especially boot up and login). My IT guys gave me the full default admin account access, so I can change anything I need to, but I can't figure out what to change. I've removed the Client for Microsoft Networks in the adapter settings for the network connections, been through pretty much every setting in User Accounts to try to fix it, and even went through the IIS interface (which I also assume I no longer need). A fresh installation of the OS would really suck (and would cost a ton even though the license is OEM and tied to the hardware). Any help?
Much appreciated and almost out of gas on this journey...
