I am sure there is a simple way of doing this but I want to erase everything on my computer and restore it back to the original erasing everything but what it came with. There is nothing on it that I need to save. how do I do this and what are the precautions I need to take??

Hi jarhead_powerliner...

If this is a branded machine such as Dell or HP, what's the Make and Model Number? Do you have installation cd's?

Follow the instructions HERE starting under the heading Reinstalling Windows XP. Do the full destructive recovery which will format the drive and reinstall WinXP.
