New computer...what order to do some "prep work"
I just bought a Dell desktop with Windows 8 pre-installed. Before using the computer for anything, I want to do the following, but not sure in what order I should do them:
1) Get rid of all the bloatware using a download of decrapifier recommended by Zep.
2) Make Win8 restore media
3) Install Kaspersky anti virus which I have.
Then, I'm on my way to set the machine up how I need it. If I make the restore media first, will it contain bloatware? If I get rid of the bloatware first, I need to download decrap without an anti virus installed. I want a clean copy of restore media and don't know if installing the anti virus and decrap software before making the restore media will jeoprodize a clean copy of the restore media. But if I do the restore media first, will it contain all the bloatware?
Hope I'm making sense. Thanks for your reply.
