I downloaded bitcoin and encrypted my wallet with a random string of characters which i copied and saved in a hidden word file, for some reason bitcoin will not accept the password.  Thankfully the wallet has no bitcoins in it, but after uninstalling and reinstalling bitcoin in an attempt to reset the wallet is again the one it is using.  How do I delete that wallet?  I want to start a new one.

just delete your wallet.dat file, as the above posters have said, and your bitcoin client will generate a new wallet for you Smiley

What about windows 8 installation this folder doesn't exist there

Even thought thread you bumped is older than Windows 8, the second post is correct.
