Like this? Clean Install Windows 7

or this? Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

or possibly this? Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Update: A Repair Install just solved Duchess' System Restore failure.

I've just got a new laptop and have allmy software installed and all the bloat removed, but i have to keep running windows update.

I think i'm on my 5th or 6th update. Is there a way to get all the updates in one process?

One of the ways to reduce the number of updates is to install the SP1 version of Windows 7 as it contains all the updates from the time Windows 7 was released to the time SP1 was released.
