I just bought a Dell laptop and want most of the applications off except a few so how do you reformat this new computer to remove the useless applications and ad-ware set in from the factory?

Reformatting is probably not your best bet. Add/Remove programs in the control panel will get rid of most unwanted applications. Reformatting would require an Operating System disk. Most restore disks will replace all of the software you are trying to get rid of.
If you want to keep no track of the programs and if you are advanced with computers you could, after doing what is described before and remove the key from the windows key registry -if you are not sure, leave it to a professional-.
