My computer, right click on the drive you want to format, then click "format" from the drop down menu. Assuming your using windows.

You could put in the windows disk and delete the current partition to create a new one.

ive lost that Cd along time ago is there any other options?

Boot from your windows CD. Keep picking the options as if you wanna install Windows from scratch. When it comes to the screen with the different partition options, delete the old one and make a new one. Then install normally.

EDIT: How did you expect to reinstall windows without the CD?

First, find out if your computer has a built-in recovery partition. Do this by clicking on My Computer, and if you see something like Recovery (D: ), that means you have one. Don't open it, you can't restore anything from here, (or at least my PC doesn't let me. Go to Start > All Programs > PC Help & Tools > Recovery Manager. If you can't find these folders, do a search for Recovery Manager. Follow the steps it gives you, it's simple.

If you don't have a recovery partition, you have to get the Installation CD for the OS you are using. Your computer may have came with these when you bought it, if it didn't you'll have to buy the OS.

insert your windows OS install disk into your drive like umbrellacorp said. it should be pretty obvious from there.

make sure you save the stuff you need on a dvd or something first, because once you reformat, there is no way to get it back unless you are the FBI or something.

usually pc's come with a recovery partition that allows you to format and reinstall windows in minutes
as you boot its usually the F10 button
just be sure to back up important stuff like pictures music etc..
when its done it will be just like new

Use Linux. You don't get viruses. Plus it's basically the viagra of the internet. Your E-Penis almost triples if you use Linux as your Operating System.

Get an antivirus instead of reformatting.(Reformatting will not delete some kinda viruses)
There's some good antiviruses as a boot cd.Google "Hiren's boot cd".
It's an image file and you can burn it to a cd and use it.
It's also free.The latest version is Hiren's BootCD 9.5 I think.
