Re-installing Vista

Specs: Windows Vista
I got a virus on my Dell 1525 laptop. So i wanted a clean system and hence did a vista reinstall. Even after that doing the reinstall from Vista CD, i still see some of the virus files on my C drive along with Windows.old folder and 80% harddisk full ( assuming with virus -windows batch files).

How do clean my hard disk so that i have just a brand new vista and hard disk and no old windows. I think it is saving the virus files in the old windows folder.

have you tried doing a complete format and install instead of a repair? Just make sure to back up your valuable content before attempting it because your drive will be wiped clean.
