If you erase and restore everything the way it is now, you'll have the same problem. However, if you want to erase the boot volume, you can do that by booting into Recovery (command-R at startup) and launching Disk Utility. After erasing the volume, reinstall OS X. You may need your AppleID and password to do that.
That is what I would do. I use this "erase and install" method whenever installing an OS, whether the same one after corruption or a new one (like Lion then Mountain Lion). The erasure of the drive scours out all glitches. I have refined the process of setting up a new account and password, copying all my docs and images etc. and resetting my Mail accounts. It takes time, but it works (in my experience, except for the widespread magic mouse cursor disappearing, which has persisted for me during Lion and M. Lion and for which there seems no solution, even from Apple).
