Yes,
I know, it sure is a pain.

The best would be to uninstall stuff you do not need, the first thing.

Or format the disk, and use the recovery DVD/CD that bundled with it. Maybe it will give you a choice regarding what programs you want to install. (That again is time-consuming and cumbersome, and I doubt if formatting the drive means voiding the warranty etc).

By the way, what model is the laptop?
