I recently bought a new desktop, should I do a clean install of Windows?

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a desktop from Asus.  As per the norm these days it came with a lot of bloatware.  I've been told to do a fresh install of Windows 7 to get rid of it all and clear my computer of that nonsense, and then download the drivers after.  How do I go about doing this?  The computer did not come with a Windows 7 install disc.  What should I do?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Iskandr, if it was me i would just clean it up & out of whose ever stuff you got it from ! Then if its not good enough for what you want it for then buy you a Windows 7 disk & then install it !!

I can help you clean it up pretty good if that's the way you want to go !

Doesn't it have a "recovery partition"? You are normally instructed to make recovery disks from there when you first start up a new machine.

 

Make the disks, put them away safely, then strip out the bloatware.
