    I would move all my personal stuff into its own partition if not already done, not forgetting any email client folders you may have.

    I'd then reformat and install Windows 7 on a nice clean C: partition.

    (I haven't got a "manufacturers" PC though, your situation may be different).

    You'll find that once the Windows 7 install disk starts up it is a very quick, in comparison to XP or Vista, installation. Make sure your removable media drive is set to boot first in your BIOS. If you've never changed this boot order then it should be set to first anyways.
