It came with an oem windows disc and a drivers disc.
That seemed ok to me.
As for crap......are you talking about the shareware products?
This machine had a bunch of that stuff installed....none of which I wanted.
Sooo....boot from the windows disc....format....install.
After that's done....install the drivers.
POOF....all the shareware has vanished.
A nice spiffy clean install of windows.
Can someone explain to me why Dell is not shipping the Original Microsoft Operating Systems Install Disk with new computers? This seems ridiculous to me. What if I only want the OS on my computer and not all the other crap? I'm I not purchasing a license to own the software? Please shed so light on this for me.
