I would pull that hard drive out install a new one put and OS and security software on it then install the old drive as a secondary. Once you get to that point you can take the items you want off the secondary onto the new drive, when you are done you can format the old drive and reuse it that is if it is not to old. I put new hard drives in my machines every two years, if there are -0- problems with the old drive I usually do Xcopy check everything then take a hammer to the old drive.
Honesty & Integrity Above All!
