If I do a fresh install of my Windows XP, will it get rid of the viruses that were in my computer? My computer is messed up and I can't install programs in it anymore. Three viruses could not be removed so I want to reinstall Windows XP.

Well that would kill most viruses, but to be sure during the installation I delete the xp partition and then recreate it, quick format and it carries on with the installation. Formatting will wipe the drive partition so make sure you have any data etc backed up.
