Most OEM systems have some means of returning to the "fresh from the factory" state. The method to do this depends on the make and model of your computer.

Note: Returning to the original OEM state WILL NOT restore any files you've created since buying the computer. Additionally, all files currently on the hard drive will be wiped as part of the process.
