You might be better off doing the clean install as suggested by Greg a few posts previously - it will get rid of the bloat

The HP preinstall bloatware cannot just be turned off as it's riddled the registry with keys that corrupt Win7's perfect performance. That's why it's the worst possible install one can have and also one which no tech enthusiast would run.

Do a fresh and clean installation of Windows. Ive had your symptoms before on an old laptop (think it was HP)

Think this was due to letting kids play on it and download all sorts but in the end i had to reinstall to cure all problems.
