First you have to create partition.You need at least two partition. One in which you intall Xp and other for win 7. WARNIG BACK UP YOUR DATA BEFORE THIS.*(You can create partion by any hard drive manager you can make a hard drive partition in control panel>administrative tool>create & manage hard drive partition) Now install xp first in one partition.

The easiest way to maintain your computer without intrusive antivirus programs is using the Microsoft Security Essentials which comes free it covers antivirus as well as ad ware and spyware. Does and regular scan of any software or file changes that may occur while on line. You can download this software here. I have not received any problems using this software.

The virus could be a partition virus. Did you delete the existing partition and then format? If not then, I would suggest, you to do it first.
It is also likely that any of the CD's that you are using for installing software's might be infected by the Virus.
Therefore, first Delete the existing partition, then create new partition, then install XP and after than Install a good AntiVirus software.
There is also another easy way out, if you are able to get the name of the Virus, I could suggest the AntiVirus that can remove the virus without having to format it. But this is only if the virus is not a Partition Virus.
I recommend Ubuntu it's smart fast and the virus won't run on it! you could install it in a second partition on the hard drive (minimum space is 4 GB recommended is 8 G) or you can run it "live" using the CD. If you install it in a separate partition you can still use the computer and access your files from windows! I recommend you try it and install "clamtk" from Synaptic Package Manager. It is a virus scanner that detects Windows AND Linux viruses! It's also FREE! Who knows, you might just like Ubuntu too!
You need to get a good anti virus program and install it on your computer. it will scan initially, which will check the boot partition and main windows files. then once the program is installed run a full scan on your computer. I use Panda Anti Virus, http://www.pandasoftware.com
why not reinstall sp3 again for windows xp if it freezes then it might be looking for files that don't exist anymore. If the virus attatched itself to your files they may have been removed when you ran your virus software. you don't need to format to reload windows. Just simply do a clean reinstall on C drive.
