I have been having virus problems with my computer lately and feel that it would be easier if I just reload my system to the factory default. Unfortunately, the factory restore on my computer via a partitioned drive is not functioning. I do not know if this is virus related. I was wondering if I could use disks generated from another computer. I have an Acer Aspire 5610Z running on Windows Vista and my friends computer is also an Acer Aspire but a different model number. It also runs on Windows Vista. Can I use the recovery disks made from his computer on mine? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
