Windows 7: Clean Install Remnants Remain

Clean Install Remnants Remain

I have deleted partition, used unallocated drive, formatted drive and still find my Windows Explorer pinned to my toolbar. I do have to re-install drivers. I have formatted XP Pro many times over the years and I am used to a completely formatted drive. I even ran XP to format it once.

This has happened with all builds and RC 1. Running Dell Mini 9 with SSD. So I don't know if it's 7 or my SSD but no icon I pinned should be there on first boot.

Thanks in advance.

Isn't Explorer pinned to the taskbar by default?

No. Windows Explorer, not IE.

It's pinned by default. Media Player, IE and Windows Explorer I believe.
