Do you have the Recovery Disk?

Why do you want to remove everything?

Be sure not to wipe partitions you want to keep eg. Recovery Partition!
Clean all" will wipe the disk.

If you are keeping the computer and not worried about people recovering "deleted" files then a factory restore is all you need.
