  2. Vista HB reinstall = no original apps; help?

    wow, that list is really helpful; better than anything I have found before; thanks!
    I'm not sure just what I am looking for, I guess -
    the front case says "Digital Media Manager" underneath eight slots for SD Cards, usb ports, etc,;
    my friend, the owner, remembers a "Digital Media Reader" folder in "program files" on the "C" drive.
    Your list suggests that I am also looking for Cyberlink PowerToGo for DVD playback.
    Thanks again!

    Reinstalling Windows 10 to sell a PC - is the 'Remove everything' option enough?

    Restore factory settings do list Removes your personal files, apps and settings, and reinstalls the version of Windows that came on this PC.

    So if this isn't true well than just erase the drive and install a clean Windows 10 with all the drivers u need but why should it be true
