I was wondering if there was a way to make my computer like new. Do I system restore? I dont have an XP CD. So I cant reformat or anything. What else can I do? Can I download something?

If your computer came with a restore disk, it usually has an option to restore it to its original "factory" condition. This will delete anything, including service packs, that you have copied into your hard drive; deletion, however, should not be confused with erasing.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

You could alway pain yourself to learn Linux. It is worth it in the long run.

OEM's who don't supply recovery software on cd, unless you specificly request it, will often store it in a hidden partition on your drive instead. Method of recovery depends on the system.
Post the make and model of your computer here or visit the Manufacturers website.
