I have an Aspire 5750.  It came preloaded with Windows 7 and I used Microsoft's free upgrade to upgrade this to Windows 10 a few years ago.  It's running very slowly now and crashes every now and again, so I'd like to perform a clean installation of Windows 10 using a Bootable Windows 10 USB created by download from Microsoft.  Ideally I'd like to delete all partitions to make everything as clean as possible.

The question I have relates to how I recover the Acer drivers and apps.  When I have completed the Windows installation, should I simply use the recovery backup disc I created when I first got my Aspire in 2011?  Will that still work with Windows 10?

    Thanks all for your help.  The clean installation of Windows 10 seems to have found all of the drivers I need and I decided I didn't need the Acer apps, so it all went pretty smoothly.
