Please bear with me as I am not amazing at everything to do wit computers, but I do know my way around one. My question is a simple one. If I wanted to delete absolutely everything on my computer, (Programs, files, pictures, folders, ect.) and make my computer seem as if it was just bought again.. How would I go about doing that?

I figured going through add/remove items in control panel was too much work.

Thanks in advance,

Basically you use the "Recovery" feature of your computer, if you have one installed from the factory, or you use the recovery disks you received with your computer to reformat and reinstall Windows.

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
