When I was still using Windows as my main OS I used to re-image my OS to disk about every six months. Since the image had all my drivers and commonly used programs in it only took about 10-15min and my computer was back to a pristine state. I did it mainly for performance, and saved my self having to use registry cleaners, and fix-it utilities. I also used Altiris SVS (Software Virtualization Solution) which is now owned by Symatec, to install all the other programs that were not included in my image. This allowed you to install programs in layers and export them to archive files. So all you had to do is import them and you were ready to go. MS Office took about 40sec to "install" this way.
