The best (and quickest) way to get rid of it is using DOS fdisk. This was included on Windows 95/98/ME bootdisks (if my memory serves me correctly). bascially, just bootup with the bootdisk to your command line (aka DOS) and type "fdisk /mbr" and that will clear your MBR. Don't have a bootdisk? Download one from the internet, they're everywhere.
