You can create a Restore Disc to restore your computer to factory defaults.
Complete the following steps to create the recovery disc set:
  1. Click Start , click All Programs , click PC Help & Tools , and then click Recovery Disc Creation .
  2. Click Next when the Welcome screen displays.
    A window opens listing the number of blank discs required to make a complete recovery set.
  3. Get the correct type and number of blank discs before continuing.
  4. Click Next and follow the on-screen instructions to create the recovery discs.

For detailed instructions and graphics, see the following support document:
