Reboot is a term for restarting the computer.

In Windows you go Start -> Turn Off Computer -> Restart.
Or where this isn't possible (Windows being Windows), you go to your computer case and press the Reset button. Branded computers don't like Reset buttons but the same effect can be achieved by holding the power button down until it turns off and pressing it again.

If you boot once, then boot again, then you've rebooted. :whistling:
