    What programs? Everything I used on XP works on win 7.

    Have a look at this link

    Does it have a restore partition or recovery discs?

    That's because you probably overwrote your recovery partition when you installed win7, so unless you made a recovery set of discs (from that partition) as advised by the manufacturer, you're out of luck.
    You may be able to order a set from the manufacturer or the vendor.
    Alternatively, if there is a sticker on the netbook with a 25 character code ( your COA ), you should be able to use a borrowed xp disc (as long as it matches type (OEM etc)), to reinstall.
