When i restart the switch and enter Enable mode I'm prompted with the  password which i used when following the link above,

I want to remove all passwords so when the switch is redeployed to the next site who ever the engineer is that is going to be reconfiguring the switch is able to access privlage mode with out the password promt.

Regards

Paul

If the switch will be completely reconfigured, then completely erase the config with "write erase" and also delete the vlan.dat. As of your desription it seems that to switch was not completely deleted.
