If I were to go to a Best Buy store within the next several days and buy a new or refurbished laptop PC pre-installed with Windows 7,
1) Will it also be pre-installed with advertisements, trialware, bloatware and other unwanted garbage lurking about or will it have a clean, fresh and pure installation of Windows 7 only?
2) When buying a laptop with an optical drive built in, (which I probably will look to buy), will I also receive a physical disc with Windows 7 on it inside the laptop box or a recovery disc of any kind?
3) How will I know if I have "extended support" on the Windows 7 install or not?
4) What exactly will happen to the Windows 7 install when the "extended support" life ends on January 14, 2020? Will I still be able to continue to use the laptop, even on the internet?
Thank you for any help!
