The good news? Your going to learn alot about which programs are on your Laptop. The bad news? Your going to be doing alot of searching on the internet for the processes that are running on your Laptop. Hit ctrl, alt,and delete, at the same time, this is called " the three finger salute", to bring up your task manager. Hit the processes tab, there you will see a list of the running processes, just do a search of each one on the internet which will give you an idea of which ones you can shutoff and which ones you need to keep running.
This site is good for getting info on your processes, http://www.processlibrary.com/
If you would like to keep some of them from starting up when windows starts. Hit your windows key and either start your run dialog or your search programs and files button, type in "msconfig" without the quotes, look at your startup tab and just uncheck the programs that you know you don't want to startup.
If you have the CD's that came with your notebook, there should be a recovery disk. Insert that disk and see if it solves the problem. If not, than I suggest you reinstall Windows and start from scratch.
If your son used the edata security and used both passwords. you can either ask him for password or change the boot secuence to boot to restore disk and restore back to default..which defaults to NO PASSWORD set.
To prevent the computer from freezing up, make sure you are running nothing else while you are trying to burn the disk. You can also change the programs that are starting up. Hit start, run, type msconfig, go to startup, uncheck everything, restart the computer. Then try to burn the disk. Also you can run CCleaner to repair some of your registry.
