Question about Computers & Internet
If you had a backed up image of the disk you may be able to restore. If not, you need to buy recovery media from the manufacturer or a generic copy of Windows (compatible with your hardware)
Most interesting is to take this as an opportunity to switch to Linux. Free distributions are available

If the units are running slow, you can do some maintenance on them to speed them up.
First, run defragmenter on both units.(in Safe mode)
Download ScrubXP which will automatically clear your temp, cookies and TIF files.
Download CCleaner and run it.
Run your Anti-virus program: download the free version of AVG. (Great virus protection.)
Other programs to use are SpyBlaster and Winpatrol, all of which are free.
This should help, if you feel that you need to format and restore the units, youcan do so. But try this first.

Providing the laptop was built after 2005 then there should be a recovery partition on the laptop.
Turn the laptop on and repeatedly press the F10 key, this should get you into the recovery partition and allow you to factory restore the laptop.
