    Clean Install Windows 8.1 on New XPS 8700


    Hello--I have a new Dell XPS 8700 i7-4770 (still in the box!) and would like to perform a clean install of windows 8.1. Windows came pre-installed on the machine. The reason I'd like to do this is to get rid of bloatware that I'm sure will come on the machine. If someone could help me out with how to go about this -- or direct me to the appropriate thread -- I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much in advance!

    Most of that "bloatware" can be safely removed with "Revo Uninstaller" or a program like that. Just watch out what you are removing, some of that stuff maybe good for your computer. If you don't have it, make a rescue disk first.
