Question about Computers & Internet
For this solution you will need another working PC and an additional thumb drive.
I would recommend purchasing (there is a trial version) an application that will make a flash drives bootable. Creating a bootable thumb drive is a bit complicated without the program but do-able, however I much prefer using a program made for doing it. It's fast and easy.
You can also create a bootable CD or floppy drive, but I prefer thumb drives.
I use boot disk creator. it allows you to turn any disk into a bootable disk. There is a trial version http://www.ntfs.com/boot-disk.htm
This application will allow you to reformat or even repartition the drive, in NTFS, Fat or Fat32. Once up and booted to the thumb drive, you should be able to access your other drive and run it's applications. This program will even access the internet if you need it. It is full operating system.
One huge caveat, your computer must have the ability to boot from USB drives. If you have a PC that was manufactured in the last several years, chances are that its BIOS will allow you to configure the USB port to act as a bootable device. You will need to go into the BIOS (setup program prior to Windows) and change the boot order. During boot you may have to choose the USB device to boot from.
