Blue Screen In Setup

Specs: Windows XP
Hi, I had some problem with virus i had in my computer. My Avast found it and tried to heal or remove, but it told me that i have to reboot my computer. I did so, but now, i cant get to windows. I start my computer as usualy, but it reboot itself quite quick. I cant get to safe mode also. Of course I tried every other mode but everything was same ->> reboot. So i decided to re-instal my windows(i got xp prof).But when the setup up started with a blue screen and it was checking some drivers and this stuff, it suddenly goes to black screen with this flashing "_" and then jump to the blue screen and it told me about some problem with plug and play. I was trying to do something with that, but everything i tried get me to that blue screen or reboot. So i decided to put my windows harddisc (i got 2 HDs) to other computer and format it there, but it show me some black screen with general protection fault. So i get this HD out and try to run my pc with the other windowsless HD, but the setup failed on that same blue screen. I appreciate every advice you give me. Thank you

To get your HD really clean, use both of these, they are instant ( no waiting ) start with Zap 1st & WIPE OUT immediately after.
Only safe way to clean up the HD, is to do it on it's own, in other words no other HD connected to the cable or motherboard.

1: Make sure no other hard drive is connected.

2: Set the bios to boot from floppy first.

3: Use this W95 boot disk. Unzip the files onto a floppy & reboot.
W95 Boot disk

4: Type > zap 1 & press > Enter.

5: Type > wipeout c: /nq /np & press > Enter

6: Change bios to boot from CD first.

7: Remove boot floppy, insert XP ( or whatever operating system you want to install ) cd & reboot, format & partition ( recommend NTFS ) as required.
