A few months ago I read somewhere that I can use "System Recovery" or something to delete EVERYTHING (except the OS) and start off like I just got it. My computer has all of the files backed up somewhere so I don't have to use an XP disc (I lost it a long time ago anyway). So I did that and it worked. But now I would like to do it again, however I cannot find ANYTHING to do this. Can someone please help me with this?

Thanks!

If you have a recovery partition, you can use that. I think it's F10 on reboot to access it. I will see if I can confirm that. What model computer is it?

OH, THANK YOU! That works. I won't bother going into detail, but I have a Compaq Presario... old little thing. :\
