Windows 7: First scan from Ccleaner

If you follow Rich 100% you'll have lots of trouble free time with your new computer. Malwarebytes and Microsoft Security Essentials will keep you covered and you can get rid of everything else. Lot less to worry about that way.

And, how do you know what you're getting for Christmas before Christmas? That's completely unfair.

By the way, what is the difference between system restore (which I know how to do) and a system image?

I will tell you, but everything like that is in the tutorials that I gave you.

System Image is an image of your entire hard drive. As soon as you get your computer, install your programs etc and make a system image and put it on an external hard drive and forget about it
Once a month on another drive make a system image and update it once a month
If you ever have a serious problem you can restore your hard drive with the current image
If its a very serious problem, you can restore it with the one that you put away. A very serious problem is something like a virus thats on the current system image, too.

This is what I have
No registry
and I have the cookies that I want in the saved column, right.

After all the bloatware, do a defrag and chkdsk.

For vista and Seven. No reg cleaners, mechanic tune up etc.
Just do this
Suggestions for Proper Maintenance

Use Microsoft Security Essentials for all windows
Download and use Malwarebytes weekly. These are all free
Use the Windows Firewall.

System Temorary files affects cookies, make sure that you have cookies in the right column if you want them saved

Cookies remembers passwords etc.
Hmm, I added my Temp Folder for CCleaner to clean. Should I not have
