    I just bought a new Sony Vaio notebook, and it came with AOL and a lot of other unnecessary applications pre-installed. Circuit City offered to remove these things for me, but I remembered cleaning out my old PC with the help of techguy.org.

    So, at the moment, I'm running with 51 processes, and I'd like to cut it down as much as possible. Anything involving AOL or most anything that is completely useless needs to be gone, and I need your help.

    Here is my HijackThis log, and thanks in advance:
