Re: hard drive format issue
First. post ur detailed HDD partition table. That will make a clear picture of ur HD condition.
To remove the GRUB files ther is a program called superGRUB.
download the program from this link
The above link also contains the documentation.
Secondly, U asked about partition magic Bootable CD. It comes with the program.
Now its 'Norton partition magic'. After installing the program, It will ask for 'create rescue disk'. When u create that. thats it. U can recover windows by booting from the drive.
If u have any more queries, feel free to post it here.

Re: hard drive format issue
The best way use any Linux Live Cd and format the drive. It will remove grub files even. If you want to create partitions again, you can use use utility named as CFDISK in linux itself which is better than any other tool. I will suggest you to use Ubuntu Linux Live CD which is freely avaiable and even can be shipped at your place free of cost. It contains a tool named as GPARTED. that is the best tool to handle partitions.
