Re-imaging a CPU

How hard is it and should I stay with what came with the machine (vista) or go to windows 8.

Normally you do this with a drive, not a CPU. Never heard of "reimaging" a CPU.

FWIW I highly recommend learning how to do a clean "from scratch" reinstall of your drive, you'll laugh at viruses once you know you can get back to where you were in all of an hour or so.

One that works at x-ray wavelengths.

I don't think you're using the right terminology.

But it's easy. If you use Windows 7 you'll have to reformat. So make sure everything you need need is backed up somewhere else.

Agreed do a clean install, reinstall all your drivers and then take an image so next time all you have to do is slap on the saved image. Will save you tons of time.
