    Before using the new notebook, do not have the notebook connect to the INTERNET.

    Shut off WiFi if possible for the time you configure the notebook. otherwise, the Wifi
    adapter will connect to the net. and those trials will try to install.

    Download all programs to a USB key. PC Decrapifier is a good place to start

    Download PC Decrapifier 3.0.1 (Free) for Windows

    Revo is also Very safe. Use Moderate option and delete what it finds.
    Maybe read about it and learn what it can do before using.

    I do not trust IoBit either.

    As for the Trial of whatever Anti-Virus is there, use the Feature and Programs to uninstall AND then,
    use their uninstall Tool to finish the job. Don't use any other programs for this operation.

    Office can be safely uninstalled via the Feature and Programs folder.
    So can any other Windows program you don't want.

    Uninstall all other trials with Revo using the Moderate option.

    Start notebook and let it sit for about 2 minutes. Please make sure it does not connect to the Net.
    Insert USB key.
    Install programs that you have downloaded.
    Configure the notebook to your specs and then, connect to the Net.
    Let it update itself.

    Once updated, go to Device Manager and make sure No yellow triangles or grey question marks
    are next to any of the entries.

    You will also want to Start the System Restore operation as it is not started by Default. Make sure to Create a Restore point at this time.

    You may also like to take the time to stop any of Windows processes that you won't need.

    Thanks all. I had thought that I could at least install Macrium Reflect first and create an Image.

    The ones you mention MS Office trial, Security Suite trial (McAfee ?) you can use their uninstall tools. Hard to find on their websites but it is there.
    The instructions along with those tools are useful as well.

    Other minor stuff you can uninstall at your leisure, no big deal. But don't uninstall system drivers.

    You are right about Revo, past problems with that means I never use it now, it's not necessary anyway.
    I don't care if the entire world recommends it...

    IObit stuff, again bloatware you don't need, why intentionally install bloatware to get rid of bloatware.

    The first thing to do is make a recovery drive in accordance with the manufacturers instruction to a USB key drive, basically just a copy of the manufacturers recovery partition including all the bloatware.
    Gradually over time less and less useful as you make images and so on.

    Thank you...That is what I did. I first set it up enough to install Macrium Reflect v7.1 and created an image of the SSD on a thumb drive and rescue DVD. NOW, I can at least go back to that. I also did a search and can see where you can remove the ms stuff and mcafee stuff, but I want to finish setting this up so my wife can use it to enter Quicken Data.

    Well said! And I too highly recommend Revo. Used it for years with absolutely no problems. Ever.

    What's wrong with Control Panel, Remove Programs? Just two or three clicks?

    It leaves bits and pieces of the program all over you hard drive and in the registry. I use Revo Uninstaller 3.19 Pro , it removes everything including Reg entries.

    Those 2 great tools have not been mentioned, they are completely free and they support forced removal.

    To exaggerate a bit, it just removes a desktop shortcut and that is it.

    My only concern is that programs like Revo will work, but they also find things that "may" be needed by other programs that are still using some item(s) that Revo wants to uninstall.
