I want to remove all of windows off my computer and install windows ultimate instead.

Basically I have windows home premium, I want to get rid of it AND ALL MY FILES AND FOLDERS because I now have windows ultimate. How do I remove windows home premium and all my files and folders on my computer?

Please don't tell me how to upgrade to windows ultimate and keep everything, because I don't want to. I want a completely new start without a trace of home premium.

You can just put in the new CD and install Ultimate. You should get to a part of the installation when there are options to deal with existing structures. At this point just delete all partitions and create a brand new one.

Alternatively you can wipe the drive before you start with, say CopyWipe (http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/copywipe.php) or similar, but that is actually probably overkill.
