    Windows 8.1

    Okay, I give up (in), looks like a re-install is in my future. Question now becomes, I did a recovery/restore disk(s) the day I bought it. I burnt it off once I was sure I had all the Windows patches installed and any driver updates done before burning off this factory restore set of disks. What I'd like to know, is there any way I can install JUST Windows? I don't want to install any of the added on junk Toshiba included. Especially the Norton security suite. I JUST want windows 8.1. How can I extract just that when I finally bite the bullet and do a re-install?

    You could use OPTION ONE to download a retail copy of Windows 8.1 without all the OEM bloatware.
