There should be a function to create your own Factory Restore dvd's.
Create that, and boot from that. Bringing it back to exactly how it came from the store.

It's always recommended that you backup your personal files rather than Windows files, because the files which are on your computer are not the same which are in installation disc. As far as format of computer is concerned you have to create or should have an image file on CD/DVD to accomplish it.
Make sure you backup your important files before format, as there are less chances to recover lost data after format.
