Just need to know if i use a restore disc to go back do you have any problems if you have installed sp 1 and 2 or does this not matter.

your computer will return to its factory state. The operating system will be as it was on the day the machine was new, and you'll lose any software that you've installed yourself.

As FE says: The PC will be returned to the state it came through your door.

If you have installed any new parts, you will need to reinstall their drivers.

Any software will need to be reinstalled.

That includes SP2 and all of Windows other updates. Your AV and it's up-dated definitions, the Firewall, and all the run of the mill software.

You will then have to re-install your files from whatever, external medium, you have stored them.
