There should be an option in the programs listing to make recovery CD's/DVD's. That'll be able to do a "clean install" as it'll reformat your hard drive and restore it to the day that it left the factory.

Let us know the make and model of the computer and we'll try to point the way to it.

Using the ACER empowering technology (that toolbar that floats around on your desktop with the "e" in it), you can make recovey disks from the eRecovery Management section. Here's a link that describes the "technology": http://global.acer.com/products/et/notebooks.htm
