HP’s Vista Express Upgrade Allows Choice of What Applications to Install

March 21, 2007

The CDs for HP’s Vista Express Upgrade for two of our laptops arrived in the mail yesterday and I was disappointed, but not surprised, that they do a clean install of Vista rather than upgrading Vista, installing drivers and upgrading applications.

I was pleasantly surprised to learn that HP gave me a significant amount of freedom in choosing what applications I wanted to preinstall and what ones I did not want to reinstall. Skipping certain applications was as simple as unselected a check box.

If only getting rip of crapware were that easy with a new PC with the OS preinstalled!
