If you don't want to do this, you could try cleaning your system by going to the add/remove programs in the control panel and uninstalling everything(except for everything with "update for windows", "hotfix for windows", or "windows service pack 2" in its name). Once you have done that, you could then download a program such as Tuneup Utilities 2006(which still needs to be installed) and run its range of Maintenance programs to help clean up your system. This will however most likely leave some files behind as many programs do not actually uninstall everything when removed from your system. You could then run a defrag to tidy everything up.
My advice would be to do a complete fresh install of your operating system via booting up from its disk. Usually you have the option of doing a clean instal and formatting the partition it is being intsalled onto.
Hope this is of assistance.
