No need to uninstall... just make sure during the install you blank your hard drive (delete your partitions... do make sure your data is backed up)... during the install it should prompt you with some partition information and there you can delete your existing windows partition and press enter to install it to the HDD.

Could try a repair install. This will fix many problems without having to reinstall your programs.

I've done repair install before, they usually work fine after words though you may have to manually tweak and add things.it depends on how easily you can get everything back the way you want it. If it's going to be a huge hassle and some things you just wont get back try a repair first.
When I upgraded to win7 I got a new to me 400 gig and installed it fresh on that and kept my old drive as the new secondary slave in case something didn't work out.
