I purchased a laptop did an few upgrades, more ram wifi etc.The only software was to be windows xp.
It took me 6 hours over 2 days to clear the ad-ware, mal-ware and viruses.
I did contact USAnotebooks and they responded quickly saying they were going to send me a restore disk that would wipe it all away and reinstall my xp only. Well after a week and no restore disk, I paid repair tech to finish the clean up and get it operational.
I have to wonder with all the stuff on it how much might have been placed there by USAnotebooks.
