Question about Computers & Internet
Windows already comes with some features that could help you out. First, Window's System Restore feature creates restore points that attempt to enable the user to restore the computer to the same state it was when the point was created. It doesn't replace all files and programs, but it tries to restore all settings that it can.
If you want to restore just your system files from the CD you can do that as well. This will leave all programs and personal files intact, but restore the Operating System to the state it was when first installed.
Lastly, if you would like to reformat the entire computer and install Windows fresh you can do that as well. You will need a copy of a CD of a previous Windows installation, however, since you have the Upgrade version. During installation it will just ask you to pop it in to verify that you have an older version and then just proceed with a regular install.
Please comment back as to which option you would like and I can go into more detail.
