Help please,

I've got Windows Xp and seriously, I'm fed up with it. I've put so much rubbish on it, fairly sure it's got several viruses I just really want to wipe everything and restore it to what it was when I first bought the pc...

Problem is..... I don't want to delete the OS as I don't have the orignal XP CD to reinstall it again

Help, is there a solution?

Thanks

The installation files may reside on the D: sector of the hard drive. What brand and model of computer is it? Some brands and models use a generic install disk while others may be particular to the machine model. With some you can start the reinstall process by pressing one of the function keys during start up.
