    You need a system restore disc.
    And a Windows 7 (or whatever you want) disc to put on after the restore.

    If you insert the windows 7 disc there should be an option to restore.

    Wait, he said completely wipe it.
    So restoring to windows isn't completely wiping it as previous windows file are kept.
    If you're wanting to reinstall windows though, just carry on with what the other guys are telling you to do ;D

    If you are looking to completely wipe the drive, a simple short pass with DBAN will do the trick. You can download it for free online and burn it to a CD. Boot from CD and pick a quick option unless you are really interested in wiping it completely and irrecoverably clean.

    ​Data can still be ripped after a Restore.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.
