formatting the drive looses all of your data, if you have a windows cd you may be able to do a revovery but this dosen't erase the virus

Computer running slow


In my opinion, A good anti-virus is AVAST. A good spyware program is Spybot. Malware I recommend Malwarebytes.
1. Scan your computer with Spybot then restart,
2. Now scan your computer with Malwarebytes
and delete whatever comes up. restart
3. Now try scanning your computer with the anti-virus protection.
Hopefully this would of remove some of the viruses and spyware.
Read below for more information.

And for a good Price too........Free.

Last Resort, would be a Reformat. Use your recovery Cd's.

Viruses normally corrupt your computer. You probably will need to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything. Restore will not remove Viruses. Best way would be Reformat.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

Heaps of viruses corrupted files


fixer1950 sorta has the right idea. You do need an antivirus, but I disagree with his choice. Avast has a poor detection rate. You should use Avira if you want a free antivirus or Nod32 if you don't mind paying for one. To get rid of the viruses, run malwarebytes and superantispyware. Then install either Avira or Nod32.
Keep all your software up to date, keep the Windows Firewall on and run ccleaner once a week or so and you should be fine.
