I'm not very advanced when it comes to fixing computer problems. My computer has become much slower and when I run Avast!, it usually finds multiple problems. Since I have no important files on my computer that aren't backed up, I was wondering if there is anyway to restore my computer to its original state as if it were new. This would seem like the quickest and simplest solution. I run Vista. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi 69otters,

I hope the following link will give you the information you are looking for
When Should I Format, How Should I Reinstall

Depending on the brand of your computer, you may have a Vista installation disk or a factory settings disk. Both can be used to reformat and reinstall Vista. If you let me know what disk you have, I can help you further if you need.

Also make sure to check if you have the disk(s) with the drivers that came with your computer.

regards, Elise
