Need help in removing baddies and improving scores

[ Edited ]
I hear alot of people saying they have removed negatives from their reports. (Including yourself) I currently have negatives and am on my way to try to increase my credit score. I need to do something asap. I am hoping to buy a house this year. All three of my scores are right under 600. I think removing those old negatives may help. I am on time on major debts. Student loan, car, etc. I have two credit cards and they both are on-time and low balances. (100-200 each) My question to you is...How does someone remove negatives from their report? I currently have an account with MyFico and Truecredit so I can keep a really close eye on it. What method did you take to remove negatives?

Fairfield, I split your post to form a new thread so that some of your questions can get answered.

 

BTW, Welcome to the forums!

I'd suggest reading the following:

Credit Scoring 101 - great for knowing what is in your credit score and to see how your score is impacted.

and What Steps Do I Take - great for learning the repair process.
