My HP came with Win 7 64 and includes all of the junk that HP includes on the partition. I am thinking that my computer would run better and I would not have to put up with all of the ad's and games that they include.
Now the question:) If I decide to do this can I get away with buying a Win 7 upgrade disk or do I need to get the full Win 7 disk? Will the new disk I get have the option of 32 and 64 bit (I have 8 gigs of ram)? I also would like some input on if this is a good plan or am I wasting my time. Thanks, Chuck

It's a waste of money. Use a program like PCDecrapifier to remove unwanted software.

I agree with DoubleHelix. Just find some GOOD software to clean out your computer with, and you should be good to go.

Or you could just go in and uninstall what you don't want.

After you get a cleaned up HP system ..
Make an Image Backup so you don't have to do this again ... I use Acronis and an external HDD.

Make sure you have made your HP recovery DVDs before you perform any surgery.

Hi Thanks for the reply's I did go into control panel-uninstall and deleted all of the stuff I could find but some still come up like Norton and MS messenger. I may have gotten them with Revo.(y)Thanks, Chuck

You did not uninstall all of Norton, look for Symantec entries.

Messenger, open it, and change the option not startup.
