Windows 7: Bug issues

Bug issues

Hello all,
Okay, I rebuilt my machine about five months ago. I am using BitDefender for anit-virus-spam-firewall. Everything was working great for the first several months. Then sometime after checking my work e-mails from home on my machine I started to notice my internet brousing was going much slower than usual. I was also not able to access some websites anymore with IE. I did notice something very perculiar though. Whenever I would change my weather location on MSN on my home machine I would notice that same location was now on MSN at a work machine using XP. I think my employer placed a tracking cookie on my machine when I accessed my work e-mails.

So, I reinstalled my OS (win 7) on my SSD HD. I left out all of my other software to see if it may have been effecting my system. I did reinstall BitDefender. During a scan of my computer BitDefender came across two files that could not be scanned because they were over compressed. They belonged to Nero 7. Which was odd because I had not yet reinstalled Nero but had it installed before the re-install. And I am still; having the same weird issue with my weather location on IE. It's obvious there is still some old data lingering on my SSD HD.

So, what do I need to do to ensure my SSD HD is wiped clean so I can re-install Win 7? Is there some software out there to wipe clean my SSD HD I can use? Thanks, Bruce

NO error there, you can not clean Disk 0 from the desktop.
Use your Windows 7 DVD.

Thanks Theog.
Bare foot kid I tried that process and my machine locks up. I will try it again today. Maybe I did something out of line. Thanks, Bruce

Ok,

When I get to the "press any key to boot from cd/dvd" screen I press any key and one of two things happens.

The machine gives me a BOOTMGR is corrupt and it freezes
or
The machine freezes and I get a beeping sound from the mobo speaker.

So what is going on here? Thanks, Bruce

I bought it through Newegg when I rebuilt my machine about six months ago. Do you think I could have a BIOS issue with my MSI MoBo? Bruce
