Utilize the System Restore capability in windows. Check to see if you have any restore points available before the issues started or before you installed these free and trial versions of software that you are having trouble removing.
To check for restore points in Windows XP:
Select: Start - Help and Support Center - Undo changes to your computer with System Restore
In System Restore window that pops up, make sure the radio button with "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is selected and then click the Next button.
At this point you will see a calendar. The dates in Bold (example: 8 vs. 8) are dates with restore points you can select. Select a bold date by clicking on it. In the list next to the calendar, you will see the restore points created that day. If you use the arrows at the top right and left of the list frame, you can jump from restore point dates and see the reason for the restore point. Once you find the point that you want to restore to, just click it in the list and click Next.
You will be asked to verify that you want to restore,.. do so by clicking Next. You will not lose data that has been created,.. all data and personal files will be kept,.. but problem programs and settings will be removed or reverted to a previous state.
I hope this helps you get the issue corrected. If you are not confident in restoring your system,.. please consult someone locally who can assist you with it.

SOURCE: i am trying to format
While formating the system you must be careful about a few points. First and foremost is to take the backup of the important data. You should have the Operating System, required software and especially Drivers of the system if you prefer to completely format the system. In this case, it is better to format the system (or C: drive) from windows setup and reinstall the Operating System, software and drivers etc.
From command prompt you can format the drives other than C: which usually has the operating system. The steps/ command to format the D: drive for instance are as under: -
1. Open Command Prompt.
2. Type C:\ and press Enter.
3. Type 'format D:
This will format the D: Drive and wip all the Data.
Alternatively, you can format the drives from the Windows Operating System by right-clicking the drive and choosing 'Format' to wipe the drive you wish to format. It is a safer method as it is visual as compared to DOS prompt. Please note that formating the drive will delete the data on that partition/disk.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!
