You have all kinds of language versions of the same program.
I don't know what country you are in but uninstall either the Dutch or the English version of windows live mesh active control for remote connections.

Here are some that need to be immediately deleted. More will follow later.

2. As for details of Windows, the sticker does not specify what the numbers are, other than the Product Key (omitted as you advise). The 3 sets of characters are, from the top :

Windows 7 Home Premium

3. I have removed those 3 programmes, I am in UK and need only English, frankly I am not sure what Mesh is even . I have also removed the Ask toolbar, which I did not install and have removed it twice before, not sure how it gets back in

4. Now doing the CCleaner and msconfig tasks, will revert when they are done (2 reboots I understand)

Kindest regards

re ASK.

Whenever you install a program being very careful and read the dialogs presented. I think even CCleaner will install ASK is you don't pay attention.

You can also do me a favor and ckeck over your installed program and uninstall anything you find there that you don't use/need UNLESS the program is in english from Microsoft.

Do you share your computer? Did you buy new? I'm just trying to determine how some of those programs ended up on your computer.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Service Pack 1 v6.1.7601

OK Karl, all done as instructed.

As for this computer, it is my laptop, bought new almost a year ago, recommended by the dealer (until this one I had only Compaq/HP and one Acer) the dealer told me Asus was virtually the same as Acer as they manufactured laptops for Acer, but it has never been very satisfactory. In fact when it was quite new I ran some speed tests together with my 3 year old HP dual core and there was almost no improvement! In theory nobody else uses it but when I am home it is on in the study and I imagine one of the children may do, check emails etc. but very rarely, if ever.

I'll watch out for Ask, actually since the early tests I did for you the AVG/Google search bar has appeared in new tabs which were previously blank pages, as I no longer use AVG (never have on this computer) I'll remove it.

As for installed programmes, I had already unchecked many when I was first trying to find the speed problem, even before finding this forum, I am a bit nervous disabling those I do not recognise as they may be critical. After this I'll do some searches to identify them.

Many thanks Karl, what now?

Acer is not related to Asus.

Since you've got enough experience now to qualify as a Tech Enthusiast, most of us don't run the factory preinstall which is compromised by all of the preinstalled bloatware and useless OEM utilties which have better versions built into Win7. Instead Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 following the steps in the blue link to get it perfect.

Until then you can apply some of the same Best Practices for Win7 by Cleaning Up Factory Bloatware - Windows 7 Forums
