That is one thing I do not have, the drivers and such. I bought my toshiba through amazon, and got a great deal on it. But when it came, it just came with the box and the software installed, it came with absolutely nothing else. I am far from being any kind of computer guru, and I'm honestly not sure how to go about a clean install, the very idea of it is intimidating to me after viewing your link.
I have heard that there is actual software that is designed to rid your computer of bloatware based on what it perceives to be unimportant in the running of windows. Do you have any opinion on that?
As the open gentleman said before, anything with the name toshiba on it, minus the couple apps I wanted to keep, would be a safe bet to remove. I was thinking this as well, but I wanted a second opinion.
