Thinking about System Restore on my laptop...

Hello! Just found this site tonight, hope you can help me.

I've had my laptop for just about two years, and it runs pretty slow and has a lot of junk on it. I've been debating doing a system restore -- I just had the motherboard replaced and was told there was a chance it was going to happen no matter what, and got through the stages of grief and was okay with it, but it turns out, nope, all's well.

Can someone let me know how I'd want to go about this? I just kind of want to start fresh, only installing the programs I need and use, and I do have the disc that came with it that says "System Restore" on it. I've backed up my documents, and have wireless internet access and a "loaner" laptop for a few more days. Any advice, points in the right direction, etc. would be much appreciated. Thanks much! ~RiverTam

P.S. Oops, guess I should mention that I've got an E-Machines laptop running Windows XP. Zai jian!
