well i would like to thank everyone one for your great help. but since i am a lil tired and hungry(i have learnt from past experiance's not to work on a PC tired and /or hungry. LOL ) i will continue with this tomorrow, i have armed myself with a bootable CD of DBAN and Partiton Wizard, and i do have a window 7 DVD here somewhere, so with all those programs i should be able to get that HD clean to load an OD. I will let everyone know how it goes. Once again thanks for everyone's help.

Pantz,
Excellent. All you will need is your Win7 DVD and as said before at the first dialog, pressing Shift + F10 will get you to a command prompt showing X: which is the ram drive that Win7 uses when installing. then
DiskPart
List Disk
Select Disk 0 (as an example)
Clean
Exit (to exit from DiskPart)
Exit (to exit from the command prompt)

Let us know the results.

Uninstalled IE9, not reverting back to IE8
I uninstalled the IE9 update I had to have it automatically revert back to IE8. However, my Windows does not have IE8 in "Turn on Windows Features on or off" menu. I'm using a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit upgrade from Windows Vista (the key can't be used with a 'normal' install disc).
