I have a new 7mg sector in my hard drive

Specs: xp and vista, p8600/2gb
I was running xp pro on my HP 8730 and windows started to foul up. I tried to repair but it only got worse. I started to rformat the hard drive and found a 7mg sector in C: that could'nt be removed or formatted out. I loaded vista in hopes to upgrade to 7 and it sems to be working but i suspect what ever that section is it will cause problem again. I don't mind zeroing out the hard drive but i don't have a prgram and wonder if it's imbeded in the BIOS

The small (usually 8mb) partition is standard on all fresh installs of XP - it's part of the set-up - HERE is Microsoft's explanation.
