Hi, if you'r already backup all files, why didn't you install fresh copy of Windows ?

I have to agree with Nazzgull. A recovery is potentially more work and much more risky in terms of maintaining long term system stability*.

Besides, if you are "going down", I would recommend upgrading to Windows 7 - Vista is notoriously slow.

*Disclaimer: I have not done one on a Vista machine.
