Tales from the Trenches, IT Edition

Got an HP laptop from an old friend today to work on.  "Nothing works," he says.

Not quite accurate, but then what is....

It does indeed boot up, but it loaded with "bad" software.  Here's a list:

Advanced System Protector
Any Protect
Content Explorer
Driver Restore
Free Soft Today
istart uninstall (which would NOT uninstall unless connected to Internet)
Object Browser
Pasta Quotes
Reg Cleaner Pro
Remote Access Desktop
Search Module
 Pro PC Cleaner
Solid YouTube Downloader and Converter

Users, gotta start paying attention to what's installing on your computers.
Or you're gonna end up paying me to remove it.

End Rant
