You can always uninstall the bloatware once things are back to normal. You get all your drivers.

How many times do you intended to post that link? it seems to be the answer to everything you comment on. I don't need help with that.My PC is fine. I just offered a way to help the OP. Since no one else seemed to know how.

The bloatware is corrupting to the point there will never be anything near native Win7 performance even with everything possible done to Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

Drivers are never an issue in a driver-complete OS. Did you think we're talking about XP? No one has ever not been able to find a driver for Win7 who has come here that I've seen.

Although I help with at least 50% other issues daily, I will continue to advocate Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which has been used by over a million consumers worldwide without a single complaint or anyone coming back here with problems who stick with its steps. This changed the equation on these reinstalls which previously were considered risky and not even supported by OEM's who tried to bully users to keep the bloated factory installs they were paid to load with crapware. Now not a single OEM will dare interfere with Clean Reinstall and most agree it is vastly superior and even recommend it.

All of this is due to the advocacy by these forums for getting and keeping the best possible install of Win7 which is compiled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 and based on tens of thousands of installs we've directly helped with here.

Your help was good otherwise so please stick around, but don't insult the work we do here which has helped make this the undisputed top tech forums of all times on the web.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

So you're telling me that Windows 7 ISO comes with a complete list of every driver known to existence? I've ran into many issues with drivers while upgrading or downgrading PC's. I only came here to help... If the OP Chooses to take your advice thats fine. What ever his choice maybe, as long as he's happy with the outcome, then so am I.

I appreciate the effort and your advice but once again I'm not the one who's seeking help. I've Clean Your guide is very good / informative and i'm sure it works.But it doesn't tell me anything that I didn't already know. Also There has also been reported problems with Windows 7 USB-DVD Download tool. But you have that in your first step without any alternatives.

I'm not here to insult anyone or anything, I also edited my post and recommend your method if that would suit the OP better. He purchased the PC and used it with all the bloat on it for this duration, I assumed. So i figured going back to factory settings wouldn't hurt. Some people, seem to like those pre installed apps for some reason... Plus its the best way to get the exact drivers that made the hardware work in the first place. Or get stuck with some generic device drivers signed by microsoft, which don't always perform the best.

Im here to learn and give advice I will stay around.

I did not say that.

It tells how drivers are best handled in Clean Reinstall Windows 7 and is important enough that the steps are printed in red so we don't have to repeatedly have those who force a bunch of drivers Win7 doesn't want do it over because of problems down the line. Most are in the installer but then many of those and more come in via WIndows Update after you Enable hardware auto-updating via Windows Update (Step 3). Then there's rarely more than 2-3 to import from the PC's or device's Support Downloads webpage.

There is nothing wrong with advising Factory Recovery as I offer it myself in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start however whenever anyone does that alone I always give them the cleaner option. Neither is wrong or right, just different and IMO better. Others have different opinions which I always try to respect even if I differ.

The problems with Win7 download tool are almost always with unauthorized ISO's. If you use the ISO's provided in tutorial you will not have these problems. For UEFI it requires using another app for flash stick.
