First some backround. I downloaded something that really messed up my comp, hitting it with huge amounts of spyware/adware and trojans. I spent about a week running mutiple programs trying to cleanse it (Spybot, adaware, advanced uninstaller pro, xoft spy, hijackthis). In the end there were only a few trojans and spyware apps I couldn't get rid of, so I tried a manual delete of the files, which didnt work, then tried to do it in dos, and it still didnt work.

So I Backed up my important files, dug around for my OS disk, and reinstalled. When It finished I reinstalled all my drivers and got my wireless card working again, then headed here with my problem.

I accidently installed The new installation alongside my old one. I mean, they're even on the same partition and everything. So now I need to get rid of my old one.
