if you want a really clean win 10 go into settings update & security click recovery click reset this PC and make sure it just gets rid of everything and you will get clean install of win 10 no bloatware nothing you may need some drivers from the maker of the system like if it's a dell you go to support.dell.com let it detect the service tag then it will do a small install show you the service tag and then it will detect any special drivers for you but that is the cleanest install of win 10 you can get
