You should be able to restore the default OS that shipped with the netbook using the recovery partition. Try tapping F4 repeatedly at boot, it should launch recovery. Check first under Start menu- All programs for something called Samsung Recovery Solution (or something similar) and try to launch recovery from there. See this page for a guide.

Factory restores are usually destructive, so back up critical data before attempting this. This process will recover your computer to the condition it was in when you unboxed it, including all Samsung bloatware. If you want just the OS, you'll need a disk, google for a clean iso.

If you dont have an iso, then you can also make one from the installation files.

Please note, this method uses vlite to makes a bootable iso from the Student edition downloaded files (that MS unfortunately provided in some wierd formats initially). In this case there are no such files, hence not applicable.

My son bought a EEEPC 1001 or something like that. It has W7 starter as OS. Is this netbook capable of running any of the higher spec W7 Os's without to much of a problem? Without getting back to him I don't know what the ram situation is. Any hints or advice on that? Thanks
