    Can it be done by any user....or is it only limited to the power of admins?

    If so, do you need an admin's password to do so?

    Im doing this because my computer is being slow lately and maybe this might speed it up. Thanks in advance.

    I'm almost positive that you need an admin password to do a restore, although you can use the restore cds to reset the password if necessary. Are you the owner of this computer?
