please help me regarding windows reinstallation????

hey guys the other day i brough a Compaq Presario 2500 Laptop and i went on the internet and got virus :mad:now i want to reinstall the windows to factory settings
my question is that the notebook came with 4 recovery disks
my other laptop only came with 2 one to reinstall and one for the drivers ,
so i am abit confused to why there is 4 recovery disks:confused:
is there anyway someone can please can help me ??:thumbsup:

Can you not just clean the pc and do a full system scan ?

If not they would say what they are on each cd ? Can you post what they say ?

i would rather do a reinstall because nothing is on there anyway as its new plus i will know its gone ;)

on the disks it says `quick restore disk 1` , `quick restore disk 2` and so on
i have 4 of those plus one dark red one that says OS windows xp home edition

please let me know
