Geek squad recommended and ADR for OS... what do I need to do?

So, I have my recovery discs. I want my computer to run normally again. As of now, it is running extremely slow. I DO NOT want to perform a system restore (that will not be enough at this point; I need to take more extreme action here). How do I reboot this thing? I have a Hp notebook with Windows Vista. ... show more So, I have my recovery discs. I want my computer to run normally again. As of now, it is running extremely slow.

Please give step by step instructions if you want to help. I can work my way around the computer but I am not super tech savvy by any means.
Thanks.
