If the computer is still working why don't you create the restore disks?

And before you reset/restore to as was when received, first ensure you have safeguarded all your personal files - off the system entirely. Typically copy to dvd, but another external hard drive to is nice(r).

That way when you do your reset, that critical personal stuff will be secure elsewhere.

Hello,

Just re-image the laptop using the operating system disc that may have came with your laptop otherwise you will need to purchase an operating system disc for the operating system you are using.

What brand & model? Because each brand and some models are different. Nearly all manufactured systems these days include a recovery partition on the hard drive. You just need to access the recovery program to do what you want which is called a factory restore. Since you have not answered the question, you an go to the mfg's web site and look it up in your online manual. It will typically be a key to tap at boot up, though it might be two keys, an F_ key, an option on the F8 menu, or possibly something else.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Some computers and laptops come with the manufacturer having placed some icons usually under manufacturer's name. For example, under Acer, I found the icon named Acer Recovery Manager, which can restore Windows 7 & apps to factory roll-out, or reinstall specific programs, and a couple of other things.
