If your computer is an HP, Compaq, or Acer, you may have a hidden partition to restore the operating system to its original condition - that means you would want to backup your files to another computer or hard drive because that restore will reformat the partition your system and files are on; you will also have to re-install any programs YOU added since your got it.

Provide your computer's make and model, and we can find out how to re-install the OS.
