    The first thing any laptop owner should do is get rid of all the manufacturers crappy bloatware. Or do a fresh install themselves. Though I suppose most people are not that savy and probably think that stuff needs to be there. I work in an IT dept and have had a few people come to us with new laptops so we can make sure everything is ok with it and install any apps we feel are essential. Usually we clean it out and install spybot, spyblaster, and AVG (if they didn't buy an antivirus).
