    Under bloatware, you have Wireless assistant (unless you want to control bt and wireless seperate). I don't have the wireless assistant installed, and am able to turn off the bluetooth adapter through the bluetooth settings of windows by checking Turn off bluetooth adapter. Just thought I'd throw that out there. Not sure if its device specific. Was also able to do this in Vista after SP2.

    Yeah, I would not rather play with that.

    Used Revo Uninstaller for my Dell old drivers, and it erased everything, and went out of internet. Unless you know how to do it, I do not suggest messing around with the wireless drivers.

    very helpful tips, mr velocity. just to add to what you said though - this is what i do on my machines. whenever my machine is clean of any spyware AND i've installed the apps i've wanted, i take an image of the machine using bartPE. I save an image of the entire hard disk on my laptop to an external drive (Western digital mybook).

    Recovery dvd's do the same thing but i've found that they take wayy too much time+ reinstall all the junk you removed in the 1st place. using imaging software, i can revert back to a clean OS image within 10-20 minutes time - depending on the size of data on the image.

    I would image the hard drive before your #7 and after your #8. this way, in case anything happens, you can revert back to just the clean installation of windows OR a clean installation of windows+apps that you've installed.

    just a thought. great list otherwise.

    Hi G,

    To recover your OSD for that, load up the HP quick touch SW, and / or quick launch...
