Windows 7
I have a question.

Hi, Guys.

I've desired to take some question.

I got new samsung q430-11 laptop at bestbuy.

when I turned on it, I saw bestbuy program, samsung program etc...

so I want to reinstall clean windows 7 without bestbuy program like that.

I just saw product key under my laptop for windows 7.

therefore I'm going to download windows 7 home premium iso file.

is it okay to download windows 7 home premium to reinstall clean windows 7?

or I have to download samsung oem windows 7 CD?

the reason why I asked you is that I saw samsung oem cd key is only used samsung oem CD.

I hope your response.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

If the OS came with the computer, it is an OEM. You will not be able to use that key for on another OS. You are stuck with the bloatware.

Actually a OEM key will work with a retail copy of 7 as long as it is on the same computer. Of course downloading Windows at all is illegal and a very bad idea as those copies of windows usually come riddled with trojans and spyware. It is a much better idea to find a friend with a retail copy of Home Premium and install with that. Or if you can find any retail copy of 7 you can make this: Windows 7 Universal Installation Disc - Create

That option is legal as far as I know and means zero chance of viruses being built into the OS.

Why don't you just uninstall the programs you do not want. But all you can really accomplish is to save a bit of diskspace (of which you probably have a lot). Make sure those programs are disabled in the startups - that is really where they are in the way.
