Default Reinstalling the OS

So, this is the first store bought computer since Vista has launched. I figured it would be best to reinstall Vista, to get rid of all that crap they bought on the laptops/desktops.

So once I reinstall, am I going to need to find every single driver to reinstall, or should Vista be able to locate and install for me?

You'll have to located and reinstall your drivers. Check your current drivers before you format.

If you've bought from a well known company (such as dell) they have all the drivers in one place.
