    How do I restore to Original Factory Settings with Vista?

    Hi all;

    I have an Acer Aspire 3690 Laptop with Windows Vista home basic. I have had problems with spyware and viruses and such and now the thing runs slowly in whatever i am doing and some time got stuck. How do i restore it to original factory settings?
    I understand there may be "better" solutions, but i really don't mind restoring to original settings and losing all the data on the disk. I've already backed up all my important files i want to save.

    Note:
    when I purchased the labtop, CD recovery disk is not included with the package!

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance
    ALL THE BEST;
    SALAH

    The procedure is simple. Restart your PC and press ALT+F10 when you get the first splash screen - or check on that screen whether they want you to press something else. That gets you to the installation wizard that will guide you.
    Besides, you are supposed to burn the recovery DVDs from your recovery partition. Look into the little booklet that came with the PC. That should tell you how that is done (it's somwhat different for each manufacturer).
