Windows 7: Win7 restore disc

Win7 restore disc

I have a Packard Bell all in one which came with Win7. I upgraded to Win10 and after using for three months or so and having numerous problems I am thinking of re-installing a reliable system ie Win7.

When I first bought the PC I made on the first day a set of 3 restore discs. Also at sometime somehow I made a Packard Bell Factory Set of 4disks. Why the second set I have since forgotten. My question is which set should I use, and is there a difference?
Sorry to ask such a basic question.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I would use what came with the system.

Then again, if you made a set with all your software and what not installed, I would use that set.

The factory set will set it back to an out of box brand new state.

But since you made your own set the day you got it, sounds like you`re stuck either way, say ya, do what Wolfgang said.
