    just go to programs > accessories > system tools > system restore

    you should have an option to undo previous restoration.

    If you mean the PC Restore Partition like the one on Dell computers, then you just reinstalled Windows. You are provided this partition instead of a Windows CD.

    Start> Help and Support
    Under Pick a Task, click Undo changes to your computer with System Restore.
    Follow the instructions on the wizard.

    could this possibly be the manufacturer's 'system restore' option, rather than windows'?

    this is known as a 'destructive' system restore as it will overwrite the system partition and wipe all data ... back to factory default.

    what is the make of your PC?

    The model number should be located on the front of the computer if this Compaq has a big green light it is about 1 or 2 inches below the light.
