Windows 7: How reset XP Mode to its original state?

How reset XP Mode to its original state?

How can I restore XP Mode to its original state?

I found one message using Google that said, " I started the XP Mode machine and picked an early restore point." but I cannot find how to select a restore point from within the XP Mode VM.

I am running Win7 Pro 64 bit with XP Mode pre-installed by Dell.

Thanks.

Step 17 is how to close the VM. Apparently I was not clear. I want to restore the XP Mode VM to its original state before any apps were installed in the VM.

If you enabled Undo Disk before installing anything, go to settings, select Undo Disks > Discard changes. If Undo Disk is not enabled, uninstall > reinstall is the only way.
