    Is Mac OS X on that Mac and can you boot into it?
    If so:

    Maybe this almost click-by-click tutorial can help:

    The DVD drive will not be needed during this procedure.

    Press the power button on the Mac and immediately press the OPTION/Alt key to get to the boot selection screen. From there you should be able to select what OS to boot in, which hopefully is Mac OS X and Windows. You select Mac OS X, wait till the boot finishes and probably cannot login any way.

    Hmm, do you have any restore media with that Mac? If so, you could perform a clean install. And it probably still has warranty?

    And what about that thread title? You seem to have more than one problem called Windows anyway.
