Will my brand new computer be faster if I uninstall everything?

I just got a brand new HP G61 320US with AMD Athlon II 2.0 Ghz processor and 3 GB RAM, running Windows 7. It is still in the box. I want it to run fast. Do I need to uninstall everything and then reinstall the basics?
If so, what program should I use to do the uninstall?

I have heard that new PCs come larded down with all kinds of garbage that takes up RAM and processor-effort. So to all you computerheads: do I need to wipe it clean? If so, does that include reinstalling the OS?
I've heard that PC Decrapifier (no joke) is a good tool for this. Yes/no?
Any advice is much appreciated.
