One of the features in both Windows 2000 and Windows XP is that the user can not delete critical system files and directories. This is so n00bs cant make some free space by randomly deleting files. So the answer to you question is no. Format is your only option

Actually, this feature is a very good safe guard. As PK mentioned, it protects normal/newbie users from harming his/her system.

Just remember, it's always good to start clean =)
