If your hampered by virus/spyware or something completely unrepairable except for reformat, then yes. Otherwise, it is pointless.
Most Vista computers have a Partition that has the recovery information on them. All you do is go to Recovery Manager and it will do it all for you. If your computer came with a "Recovery Disk", then that will also do the job.
