    login to your wordpress admin panel click the page you don't want the sidebar on and on the right hand side there is a template option, choose no sidebar (if your theme came with that option)

    I don't have the exact theme you're using but here's my advice.

    Go into your Wordpress admin panel and go to Appearance > Editor and find the template file which holds the top menu.

    A good place to start would be header.php and index.php.

    Find the ode for the top menu and edit it out.

    Don't forget to save before exiting.

    Hope this helps.

    I had a look at the code and i have no idea what to take out! :(

    could you please look and tell me what you'd suggest?

    His is the header:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes() ?>>
    <head>
    <title>
    <?php
    /*
    Cryonie Wordpress Theme

    License GNU GPL 2.0
    */
    if(is_404()) { _e('Page not found', ''); }
    elseif (is_home()) { bloginfo('description'); echo " - "; bloginfo('name'); }
    elseif (is_category()) { echo single_cat_title(); }
    elseif (is_date()) { _e('Archives', ''); echo " of "; bloginfo('name'); }
    elseif (is_search()) { _e('Search results', ''); }
    else the_title();
    ?>
    </title>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="<?php bloginfo('html_type') ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset') ?>" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen,projection" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" />
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url') ?>" <?php _e('RSS feed', '' ) ?>" />
    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url') ?>" />

    <?php wp_head() ?>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function preload()
    {
    var img1 = new Image();
    var img2 = new Image();
    img1.src = "wisland.jpg";
    img2.src = "logo.gif";
    }
    window.onload=preload;
    </script>


    </head>

    <body class="hfeed">

    <div id="header">
    <div id="logoback">
