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.

A USB DVD Key would help you. Take any friend's computer and make a USB Flash Drive Bootable with the help of a Windows 7 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.
