I would recommend reinstalling a clean version of windows so you'll get a huge performance boost since you won't have all that extra software that won't be used. I did that with my laptop (it's not a Gateway, but it came a lot of software that I don't use), and it now runs about twice as fast. I'm sure if you do that with the Gateway PC, you'll notice a similar speed boost (if you tweak windows as well).

Careful with your wording... I find it unlikely that your laptop actually runs twice as fast from removing vendor software, but I can easily believe that your laptop boots twice as fast from such an action (which I consider very important, don't get me wrong). In other words, I doubt games run faster by removing your vendor software (unless you were under 1G of RAM of course).
Ah, that's what I mostly meant, it boots much much faster. My mistake. :emb: Boot speed is very important, especially when you're running on the battery...the faster you get the system fully booted, the less battery life used up.

But I do get a big difference in overall performance (ok, maybe not twice as fast but it is a big jump). :p
