Several times ive had people want to get there computer faster, i usually sit down for 1-3 hours uninstaling every program and having them tell me what they use, but this takes a long time when i would rather have a tool that will uninstall all 3rd party programs (programs that are not part of xp pro/home) Is there such a thing out there? if anyone knows please say, as i dont do repairs in fear of needing a cd key that i dont have or if they are invalid and need updates etc...thanks for answers

No such utility exists as far as I know. It's just a case of sitting down at the PC and going through the 'Add/Remove Programs" list.
Of course, not installing anything you don't really need in the first place is even better, since even uninstalling stuff still leaves traces of it behind
in various folders as well as the Registry.

For a really thorough clean-up job without fear of removing something vital to Windows, using the Recovery CD or MS Windows CD
to re-install Windows from scratch is the only way to achieve that and end up with a pristine, rubbish-free system. More PC users should learn how to do that for themselves if they want to be truly "computer literate" instead of relying on others. There are plenty of step-by-step tutorials on how to do that on the web.

For any problems they encounter during or after install, we are only to willing to help them.
