Alright, installing SP1 now. Everything SEEMS to be in order other than my PC being a little sluggish, but that's probably because I'm installing the Service Pack. One thing I did mess up on, I forgot to save the HP Wallpaper that my PC came with. That was cool Wallpaper.

These are my current installed Programs. I remember I used to have something from Microsoft. I just can't remember what. It was something 2005 and something 2008. Visual C++ or something. I think it had redistribute in it's name.

Use the one you bought less issues less bloatware .

I'm sure it will run much better faster then it was previously set up based on all the extra crap hp throws onto thiere systems .

That of what you speak of will always be downloaded through win update don't have to worry about that .

Once you have installed a retail version you pretty much get everything from updates to driver fixes if you don't need them already .

Other then that MS will give you the visual c+++redistribute

I would have waited for SP1 official release rather than installing RC on a clean install.

I would also not run Norton on any Win7 install, but instead use MSE or Avast5 with Windows Firewall for best performance.

Updates will normally deliver Visual C++ Redistributable if you have programs that depend upon it. However you can install from standalone just to be sure it's there in case needed: Download details: Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)

Were you able to activate using Product Key on COA sticker?

Yes that worked fine. I think MSE is too basic for me personally. I haven't had any issues with Norton at all.

Do you notice the performance difference from factory install?

As long as you're getting Win7's native instantaneous performance without any hangs then install is not being hampered by anything done or installed thus far.

I didn't notice a difference at all. Only hang was when I was installing SP1, which took a lot longer than normal.
