My friend insists he had it applied to the cpu from the box.

Im confused, as i know that sometimes the heatsink and fans come with it as standard, but not cpus?

As i have orderd artic silver for my new pc, with a big heatsink and fan purchased too.. will i have to remove the compound from off the chip?

Also.. (sorry!).. if there is a thermal pad on the cpu, how easy is it to get off before use? is it a case of picking it off with your nails before i put the artic silver on there?

Thanks again!

It just rubs right off...you could use a rag and isopropyl alcohol. Then put on a thin layer of arctic silver.
