Do you have "Recovery CD's" that came with the computer which are designed to restore the computer back to factory condition?
Do you have an XP CD which will only install the operating system? A drivers CD? Program CD's?
Does your computer have a Recovery partition, (maybe a D drive) which stores all the recovery data so you can perform the recovery without any extra CD's?
With things like the Recovery CD/DVDs or the Recovery Partition, it can be easy.. Simply place the disk in the disc drive, restart the computer, and it will prompt you with the options for recovery. (The Recovery partition option is done during boot or from the Start-Programs Menu. (You'll want the "destructive" type that wipes the drive of all data, then formats, then installs everything back to it's factory state.)
Hope this helps.
