having foolishly several months ago i downloaded a version of Windows 7 from a P2P site, i originally had Windows Vista.
now i am getting all sorts of message pop-ups stating version of Windows is not genuine,
other things are also happening to my PC.
i am wondering if i reset my PC back to factory settings, will doing this reinstate Vista.
Please Advise anyone.

Yes it should do

If you have the discs to restore to factory settings then it should wipe the harddrive and install Vista which was the original OS.
