Can't delete these #$%#@ folders...

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi all, perhaps you can help me with this issue.

I had a secondary computer with windows vista that died. I pulled the HDD out to use as a slave in my current PC.

Problem is, I cannot delete the Windows folder, program files, etc. I would simply do a format but I have a TON of files on the drive that I do not want to move as it would take forever (music, movies, etc.)

I've changed permissions, taken ownership, and tried a half dozen different file deletion programs, it just refuses to delete these folders.

Any ideas or 3rd party software that can do this for me?

*edit* btw I'm running vista ultimate x64

Using Disk Managment change the drive to not be an Active or System drive.
