What is software

Question

I'm trying to wiipe out my system. I had multiple partitions and I've managed to delete them all except for one. IT won't allow me to delete the partition. It is NTFS, but it allowed me to delete all the other NTFS partitions. I've done this before with other machines and never had a problem. I've been able to do them without using Partition Magic.

Evertime I try to delete partition C it warnes me about it having neccesary items that if deleted will keep it from running properly would I like to continue. When I try to continue it won't allow me becasue it says it needs it to ruin properly.

Thus I'm stuck with ten gigs of system I'd like to eliminate. I could do a dual boot system but that wasn't my goal. Any suggestions, or do you think I need to run partition magic on this. If so, which type would I need for Windows XP.

Thanks

Al
