I'm planning a clean install and have the discs.  I would like to remove programs like Office, Norden, etc. from the DVD's before I install.  Is there a way I can delete from the discs before I install windows.  Otherwise I have to uninstall after installing windows and that is not the clean way.

OEM discs are setup or bundled with certain 3rd party softwares for marketing, partnership and promotions for revenue purposes. The only way to have a standalone windows installer bloatware free is using/purchasing the Retail Full version. There is not a method I know of that can alter this kind of installers so you just have to remove them manually by a Control Panel Removal tool.

Hello Ark,

It's really not a big deal to get rid of the added software on an OEM disk.  The problem is all the windows updates you have to install to get current.  It's a bit time consuming.

If you have the OEM disk, just do the install, then do all your windows updates.  Use Revo Uninstaller to get rid of unwanted software once you are current.  I recommend AVG or AVAST if you want a free antivirus solution.  If you are willing to pay, use Emsisoft!!!
