The first thing you need to do after a factory restore is a manual Windows Update. Do not be surprised if it needs to restart more than once and when it is done, have windows update search again for updates. This way you do not need to worry that windows update will resurface with a bunch more updates the next day when you need to do something important on the machine.
The second thing I recommend it to update all drivers for your system from the machine mfg's site (except drivers from any upgraded hardware like possibly video card upgrade).
Then you need to reinstall your preferred antivirus program and uninstall any software included from the mfg that you do not use.
Only after those are complete should you install other software.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
