Hi! I'm seriuos... I totally hate the bloatware the manufacturer put on my machine. I resented the "Vista Recovery Disc's" too. Every time I have to re-install Vista, I have to spend long periods of time erasing these programs that they originally put on my machine. And they are intricately woven in the machine and hard to figure out without damaging other programs. ( I want the manufacturer to give clean "Vista Installation Disc's" not Recovery Disc's). We paid good money, we deserve the proper stuff..
