I am surprised that Windows Live is installed by default by Dell.
If you're going to upgrade to Windows 7, then just do it and all of the unwanted software will be gone.

If you don't want virus bloatware....install OSX.
Taking the time to clean out your xp sp3 install and then upgrading to win7 will be much better used if you jsut wipe and install win7. You will get no extra software beyond win7.

Maybe I could just do a fresh install of xp PRO sp3.
I have a copy of that.
Also, does Windows 7 work well on a min 10v?
Hey, i'm with you about bloatware. I will look into OSX for the mini 10v on this forum.
That seems to be the majority of this forums' position on things
It's about time I tried Mac maybe. To see what the deal is.
Still, i'm sure somebody here bought my system with everything
they send with it- and cleaned it up. Maybe they could tell me
what they cleaned out, what their partition is what programs they
like on it. For me specifically, and my dell mini 10v that is constantly
nudging and poking me and talking to the internet and opening windows
and decision windows, bothering me! Meanwhile i'm struggling to shut all
of these annoyances down at the same time with this
%$#%! TOUCHPAD !!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry, i've been working alot of hours and I really haven't sat down for
a good DAY like I should and really immerse myself in cleaning it out.
Anyway i'm sure somebody here has done what I want to do.
Just got it a few days ago and don't want to leave myself in a position of having to BUY and OS or stuck without the computer.
This is the only computer I have that has the Internet.
dell mini 10 v
1 gig ram
XP Home SP3
160 gig hard drive that came with it
dell and microsoft bloatware
other 1.6 ghz desktop
running clean and fast for music and games.
