More information would help.
Are you sure you really want to do this?
Are you sure there isn't another way to achieve what you want?
Are you sure that this really is the problem and the proper solution?
Did you know that everything on your drive currently will be lost?
If you are sure:
If you have a typical machine made by one of the many major manufacturers out there, it should have come with a recovery partition (or at least a recovery disk set) from which you can perform a Factory Restore which will wipe out your current installation and reinstall your system exactly as the factory originally installed it originally. Every manufacturer accesses the recovery partition differently so you will have to look up your complete manual on line at the manufacturers website.

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

I almost did what you want to do this morning at 4:00. Last night I started to edit my regedit.exe and very confidently went about my business....I thoutht. After I exited out of Regedit, I could not open any Adobe programs, or other programs. Oh _hit, I really scred up because I failed to make a copy of the registry this time. I know you must do that if you want to keep from having to re-install Windows7 and go through re-installing all of the programs that you over wrote with the new installation. I did not sleep well but woke up early to tackle the problem. I was saved by reading the menu for Regedit. It explains how to restore the registry if you messed it up. I have never had to do this and hoped it would work....it did. Be sure to print the instructions to do the restore. It is very simple and in a few minutes you are back up and running.

If you do the regular maintenance, defrag, scandisk, and run Malwarebytes, CCCleaner, Trojan Remover and most important, Window Security Essentials, you should not have to be readint this right now. Well that is my 2 cents. I will say that this forum has been a life saver for me because I tend to tinker with my computer. For some reason one of the problems today that was solved was when I opened the Services, I discovered all but about three were disabled. I went to www.blackviper.com to set the services back to default for my version of Windows7.

All the best, I hope you don't have to re-install because it is a time consumer.

You use the instructions that came with the computer if it had Windows 7 preinstalled. Some have an F key at boot to recovery it. Some make you make dvd's before this process. Some have a windows application to do this. Some make you buy disks to recover it.

If you installed it by yourself then boot to the dvd and remove all partitions you don't want and reload it.

Hang up and live.
