I'm trying to help a relative who bought a computer w/o receiving a CD for her WinXP who wants to restore her pc to its original configuration. Is this possible w/o the CD? Is there another option?

Details of the computer make and model please. Then we can advise you on whether there is a hidden partition.

How do I find this out on hers? I have no experience with her system and am communicating by e-mails here. :o)
