    How did you install it? As an upgrade?

    This is easy.. Just get hold of a win98 boot floppy (or any of the bootable partitioning tools that are all over the internet) and blitz the windows partition right off. Then repartition and install whatever you want.

    Death to M$!!

    @ Morph.. We see this when people have hacked XP home OEM installs that come with the serial already on the disk.. and the wgakill.exe crack.
    I'm not saying this one is, but it has lost the uninstaller data in the registry somehow.

    Just go to this website www.bootdisk.com and get a windows98 boot disk and then copy the files on to a floppy and then boot from it and then it will run it and then you will go from DOS prompt and you can format your computer that way. Which will uninstall Windows.
