Advice needed on Windows 7 ultimate restore/format

I apologize if I have posted this in the incorrect section ( I assume I haven't )

Basically my pc is a tad old, It came with Vista :P

Not long after purchasing I installed Windows 7 ultimate x64

As you know the longer you have a pc the more useless programs/files etc you acquire.

What I want to do is restore my system back to the point I installed windows 7, But having misplaced the disk I'm unsure as to how I should go about it and figured this would be a good place to get advice on restoring my system!

Any help/advice is appreciated
