Boot from your Windows Vista CD and delete all partitions. Then everything is gone.

If you are planning on disposing of the hard disk the you should run a something like kill disk which writes all 0s to the hard. Even after a partition is deleted, data on it can be recovered.

Just to add a little...
Don't use Kill Disk if you plan on using the drive again.
If you plan on reinstalling your OS, remember that you will need to install all of your drivers, updates, programs, etc. so be prepared with all you will need ahead of time, it will save you time and trouble.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
