Hi, I have an old computer I want to delete everything from other than what it had when purchased. How do I do this please.

You really need to advise make and model number of the computer

Back up the drivers. I use Drivermax (freeware).
Check that you have a readable license code on your OS sticker.
Install the OS from a CD/DVD that matches your license.
Reinstall any extra drivers from the Drivermax backup.

Sorry, it is an Insite computer, pentium 4 running XP.

Yep. and the model number is.

I can't find any number other than the product key

Flip it over and check underneath.

it'll be a 'built' retailed pc and there will be unlikely to be a restore partition.

Insite typically gave recovery discs (or just the OS Install disc e.g. Windows XP).
