Hi hkwon, welcome to GeeksToGo!

To perform a total wipe of the hard-drive I recommend a program called Darik's Boot and Nuke - you can find it at http://dban.org/

That said however, you will have a complete wiped and blank computer- no operating system.
You will need to find a copy of Windows, or consider installing a free operating system such as linux.

Do you have a recovery partition? Is there a 2nd hard drive icon in My Computer (usually D:) called "RECOVERY"?

Deon :)
