Question about Dell Dimension C521 PC Desktop
As Donald has recommended so will I. Remember to hit the F11 or which ever works instead of the F8 and let it run the System Restore to restore the factory settings.
Although what is giving me the curiosity as to why would you want to go back when you have Vista installed on your system? Has slowed down your system if so then probably have background programs that have backdoor access to the internet it could be slowing down your system so I suggest that you get a Anti-virus program installed and running to know that no viruses or hackers are accessing the system. The other is if your running peer to peer programs make sure that they aren't running because they can also slow down your system drastically. So I hope everything works out for you.

Using Dell Factory Image Restore in Windows Vista
1 Turn on the computer.
2 As the computer starts, press <F8> on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
Note: You must press <F8> before the Windows logo appears on the screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this step until you see the menu on the screen.
3 Press the <Down Arrow> on the keyboard to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.
4 Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
5 Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
8 Click to select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition check box.
9 Click Next.
The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
10 When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.
The software is now installed as it was when the computer was first received.
