If it's a branded computer (HP, Compaq, Packard Bell, Gateway etc) you'll usually find an option on the Start Menu to restore the computer.
Failing that you typically press F10, F11, ALT+F2 or CTRL+F11 while the makers logo is on the screen, or (for Vista) restart the computer, keep pressing F8 and select "Repair Your Computer", where you'll tend to find a "<manufacturer name> Complete Recovery" or similar.
