1. Does format clean up everything, and I meant that everything into brand new?
Yes, although they say a quick format still leaves some 0's and 1's on the disk - but nothing readable by a regular computer.
2. What are those Cookies, Processes, Registry items, and Boot records mean and what'd they do? Is that good or bad to let them be there?
Probably from the installation of Windows when it calls home to check for updates, activate etc. Nothing to worry about. Best leave them there, Windows will eventually clean the trash out.
3. From question 2, if they're bad data or whatever, what should I do to them, how do I get them out?
Tracking cookies aren't necessarily bad and many people like to keep them. To get rid of them open SecurityCenter
Click Navigation (top right)
Click Quarantined and Trusted Items
Expand those drawers by clicking on them.
Select all to highlight all and then click Delete.
It can take a while if there are many.
You can tell it to stop detecting Tracking Cookies by going to the SecurityCenter main page
Click Virus and Spyware Protection to expand
Click Real Time Scanning then Settings
Uncheck that item and click Apply

Looks OK, and you are welcome. ;-)
