It came through perfectly. I am amazed at how large that recovery partition really is. Normally it is less then 4 gigs in size but yours is showing almost 15 gigs in size.
Is this the same system with the outlook issue also?
Is this the way the system came new or have you done a format and install?

this is the way it came and it is the one that i installed the live mail. the computer did not come with disk all the programs are on it already. most of the stuff i will never use however i am scared to just start deleting stuff.
like adobe and stuff like this. if you want to look at me control pannel like i did the other picture i can try and if you want you can tell me what to delete. just if you want to. best buy wants 30 dollars to get rid of stuff like this but i am waiting on my compaq.
i dropped off the compaq last night. the guy is going to try and bring it up so i can get my little girls photos off then i think i am going to buy a new hard drive for it. i can putone in. i have already taken it apart before.
i would not mind having an extra computor around

It's hard to determine what you need and don't need. Adobe covers a lot of programs, flash and the reader are just two which are essential to view some documents and to use some websites.
as far as your compaq would it not boot?
If it posted but would not boot into windows then you could use a linux Live cd to access the hard drive and copy all the photos you mentioned.
If you want to get a list of programs you question if they are needed or not I will be happy to try and sort through them and let you know what you need and don't need.

OK honestly the only thing i see you can safely remove if you are not using it is everything listed below:
Microsoft Silverlight
Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 (English)
Microsoft Office Live Add in 1.3
Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007
Compatability Pack for the 2007 Office System


Now if any of this you want then don't uninstall it because you will get everything back then if you reinstall it.

Personally I would suggest getting rid of Norton 360 and using a free Antivirus program like [b]Avast

Norton is known to be a resource hog and will slow your system down.

If you have paid for it then you might as well use it. No use in wasting the money.
No is that the one about it needs a blank disk?
