Ive bought a netbook and after reading reviews etc on here, a lot of people say to uninstall stuff that comes with it.
So.....what do I uninstall?? I only want it to surf but dont want it to be running slow!
Hope this makes sense!

Install JoliOS instead.
If you are only surfing it boots rapidly and is really rather good.

This is from thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/msi-wind-u135-win-xp-7hour-netbook-white-refurb-138-98-argos-ebay/894686

and is suggested by Sliwka

I have not done this but it looks reasonable.

First things to do when you get this machine to make it faster:
1. Remove bloatware with PC Decrapifier:
http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/download

2.a. Remove whatever security program they've put on, especially if it's McAfee, using Appremover (or search for the specific removal utility from whichever antivirus vendor is on the PC):
http://www.appremover.com/

2.b. Disable Windows Defender otherwise it might conflict with av software:

3. Install faster av program such as free Avast! antivirus or Antivir depending on your preference

http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-download
(follow these instructions to remove the Antivir nag popup http://www.elitekiller.com/files/disable_antivir_nag.htm)

4. Run Startup Lite from Malwarebytes:

5. Check for yourself what is set to startup with Windows using Autoruns:
http://download.cnet.com/AutoRuns/3000-2094_4-10744886.html

Afterwards you could run services.msc and set to manual services you don't need (lots of guides on the net, particularly blackviper), run crapcleaner (http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/slim), install extra memory, or run cleanmem (http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem) which may or may not do anything.

Or install it in addition to Windows so you can dual boot.
