Ideally what I want to do is restore factory settings but I have come across a few problems.
Initially the hard drive was partitioned with the factory settings, but I have no idea how to get at it.
Also, the Packard Bell computer came with Windows XP already installed so I don't have a Windows boot disk, although it is a legal copy.
When the computer got repaired for whatever reason a couple of years ago, all the Packard bell options and programs dissapeared, so the trick of using F11 on the Packard Bell screen does not work.

Edit: The last system restore point is yesterday so that is not really an option. An I want to do a destructive restore as I have everything I need backed up.
