Probably want to re-install Windows 7 from scratch, If you don't know how....you can always have someone that does do it for you.

Do you have important data on the laptop? If so, might want to back it up before install Windows 7 from scratch.

How much will that cost roughly?

Also...nothing to save on it at all. Just want it.completely.clearing.

Thanks MM78....problem is that i know nothing about computers as.only used to phones. And the more i think about it, im wondering whether its worth the hassle lol

To restore do this :

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

Choose the furtherest one you can..

otherwise the person you have gotten this from should have a restore disc since they come with almost every laptop now days.

Otherwise if all else fails :

Did it come with install cds/dvds?

Usually one is a restore/reinstall Windows disc. Just put it in, hit a kit when starting to boot from cd, then follow the prompts to reinstall. This will erase any bloatware/spam that manufacturers put on from the factory too!
