Considerations about OEM installed version or new clean install

hi guys!

Before all: Sorry my english, this is not my native language and this is only a simple opinion from a person with a little skills of OS and hardware.

I bought a asus n76v and I was thinking about use OEM Windows 7 64bits install or a new fresh install...first off all, on the first use I uninstalled some boring and things that was installed by face recognize logon (sometimes delay to recognize, and its annoying), and more 2 or 3 things that I will never mixer for audio e video edit software... I unchecked some itens on msconfig (startup) cyberlink dvd burning options, power dvd, adobe reader... (you can use this normally WHEN you will need)

after this I checked process list and almost fell of chair...119 process running....a lot of stupid programs running like process.... my machine is a i7 with 16gb and I will migrate to a SSD this week, but I will not lost energy with this things...

My old desktop (e8400 - 8gb), after 3 year of clean Windows 7 sp1 32bits installation and a lot of software after, show me 72 process running...(I don`t know if had substantial difference between quantity of process running between Windows 7 32 bits and Windows 7 64 bits..both sp1.)

I know that we can disable services easily, but, I don`t like much to think about a lot of some dead keys on windows register...and I will not happy use register clean software on a new installation...

OEM factory install never more....

look this: I only installed firefox after first use:
