I have finished year 12 and have left my school along with a school provided laptop.
I have just received admin privileges for my school laptop and can do anything I want with my laptop.
However they didn't remove all the annoying school software which was on it while I was working at school.
I want to remove all of that software because it seriously slows down my laptop and is annoying but I don't want to individually uninstall all of that software through the add/remove software thing in windows because it may cause faults in the system.
I thought I could reformat my HDD and leave the OS there by remove all other data on the system. However, I don't have a windows CD and the laptop doesn't have an optical drive.
How could I reformat my laptop without remove the OS?
