Can you get to disk management (by searching for "disk management" on the start menu) and delete the files on hard drive ?

Also in disk management see if there is a recovery partition, if so click set active and restart your computer that should start the restore. Hopefully i'm on the right page!

sorry was away for the weekend, if there is nothing you need on HDD or if you have already back them up I would do a full format would be alot easier than unstalling the programs manually then you would need to run your CD's again and have a fresh install.

have you got any further since friday??
