That's not true. A restore disc does just that.....restores your computer to the state it was when it was purchased, crapware included. A computer will either come with these discs or offer a utility to burn your own set, which is always a good idea.

The reason they don't include a plain vanilla Windows disc anymore is because Microsoft charges them more for that ability.
