By starting over with a clean copy of the operating system, you can remove bloatware, wipe out malware, and fix other system problems. A full, clean reinstall is different from the Refresh or Reset your PC options in Windows 8, or a manufacturer’s recovery partition or disk for Windows 7. Those built-in options will set your PC back to its factory-default state—which could include some vendor-installed junk you never wanted anyway.
