This document pertains to HP or Compaq Desktop PCs that come with recovery CD creation software.
HP computers that ship with Microsoft Windows XP and Compaq Presario Desktop PCs made in spring of 2003 and later already come with a hidden preloaded recovery partition. This hidden partition can be used to recover all of the original software in the event of a major problem by pressing the F10 key repeatedly when the computer is first started. However, there may be times when recovery CDs are needed to restore the computer, like when a virus destroys the recovery partition. By using the Recovery CD Creator program, you can create a physical set of recovery CDs from which you can restore your computer back to its original condition.
Recovery CD Creator software comes on HP and Compaq Desktop PCs made in Spring of 2003 and later. It is strongly recommended making a recovery CD set before experiencing any problems. If your HP or Compaq desktop computer with Windows XP does not have the HP Recovery CD Creator software or if recovery CDs were not created before the recovery partition was damaged or erased, contact HP Support for assistance with obtaining recovery discs .
The Recovery CD Creator program can be used to make only one set of recovery CDs for the PC. The recovery CD set contains a complete set of the original operating system, drivers, and application software that shipped with the PC.
2: Order recovery CDs on the Web
To order CDs on the Web, perform the following steps. Costs are minimal and only cover the cost of manufacturing and shipping.
NOTE: A credit card number is required for ordering recovery discs.
Go to the HP Partsurfer Web site (in English). The Parts Direct Ordering Web site uses a secure connection to protect your privacy.
Select your country from the drop-down menu in the top-right corner of the page.
Enter the model name (for example, 533w, 5002US, or XE735). The model name is located on a sticker that is stuck to the case of the PC.
Click the appropriate model name from the list that appears. If more than one model name appears, refer to the product number or part number on the identification sticker on the back of the PC.
NOTE: The recovery CD set or DVD is matched to specific PC models. It is important to select the correct model name or an error can occur when using them.
Select Recovery Kit from the by keyword dropdown.
A new page appears containing a list of all orderable software. This document only covers recovery kits. If the word recovery is not in the description or you can not select any quantity, then a recovery kit is not available for the computer. This can happen when the operating system on the recovery discs is obsolete and HP's supply of discs has run out.
Write down the part number of the recovery kit for future reference.
Type the quantity of recovery kits you wish to order (1) into the QTY field of the recovery kit part number. If you can not select any quantity, then a recovery kit is not available for the computer.
Click Order Selected Parts and then read and fill out all of the screens that appear.
A red check mark may appear, the part can still be ordered if it is available.

I use IE exclusively and have NEVER had a problem with it, but then I'm very diligent when it comes to security issues.
YES! You should get a recovery CD. Some day, some time, you WILL need it. It's just not critical that you get it right away now. But I wouldn't put it off--unless you think Dad will be opening his box sometime in the near future.
For you, I recommend that YES, use your system recovery.
