Save all your important stuff to whichever media suits you best, either another hard drive, CD-rs, Zip drive or Floppies. No you can't just copy and paste programs from one drive to another and expect them to work after you paste them back, you'll have to reinstall them again. After you have saved everything that needs to be saved, insert a bootdisc and type Format C (if C is your drive). Then reinstall your OS.

Don't forget to change your boot up options in your bios,Boot from cd rom quicker than booting from a system disk. You can change it back after installation.
