these days all computers come prepacked right off the shelves with malware. tablets too. long story short, clean installs are not "clean" at all. this thread is 2 years old but perhaps someone might find this advice to be helpful.
I did not do a restore from a restore partition or restore disc, I done a clean install from a genuine Windows 7 disk. this is not a proprietary PC, it was made entirely from after market parts, so what malware or other bugs should I be looking for in this case?
