Windows 7: Bloatware removal on new laptop.

Hopefully, this will clarify.

You have a number of options - the easiest two:

1. Buy a lappy with Pro on it , then use your existng dvd and the lappy key to clean reinstall.

2. Buy a lappy with Home Premium, then buy the $25 for pro ugrade you are able to get and clean reinstall with that.

Second option is probably cheaper - you can also get hold of a proper 64 bit Pro dvd that way (I assume ). In addition, try to get one with SP1 already included. If the $25 upgrade doesn't include the media - it is all over the place - you can hardly spend a few minutes on google without tripping over it.

No need to do Clean All - just format on the way in with the installer
