If you format, all contents will be deleted including your OS. I would suggest that you scan your computer with this free and effective antivirus online utility:

Tip

Get rid of ur virus and trojens...


if u have been using ur machine for many years and have virus and trojen in it and it's working slow....
do this
take a full back up of ur data on to a DVD/Zip Drive/Pen drive/USB HD etc.
also go to ur My Computer and note using pencil/paper the C: drive size (the Total Size, Used space, and Free space)
Download killdisk from my website...link is below...
copy it on to a CD...also create a boot disk....ensure ur computer can boot from the boot disk...check boot seq in BIOS....if u cannot boot from CD.....
boot from the boot disk....once u get the A: or D: replace the boot CD with the CD that has the Killdisk utility...
Run the killdisk utility.....type "killdisk" in the D: or A: prompt...
when killdisk loads.....note very carefuly....which is ur C: drive (check from the paper that u noted earlier the details about the C drive)
use the killdisk utility(F10) and wipe the drive...all sectors will become 000000......once the progrma is finished....this will wipe ur disk clean and get back to factory settings....all ur virus/trojens and all corrupt data will be gone....it will say that the free version will do only ONE PASS....one pass is enough....u can always repeat the process again if u want more than 1 Pass....then u can format the HD and load Windows fresh and load all ur programs....the killdisk program takes aprox 1 hr to complete for a 20GB disk....so if u have 200 GB in C: it will take aprox 10hrs to finish.....so be cool and sleep...dont intrupt the process....it will finish...be quite and patience....

If u don't have any important data format both the partition and try to reinstal xp. Sometimes virus may affect both of them. also check your xp cd is in good condition.becoz i can assure you tat either your hard disc or ram wil not gets affected by virus.

You may need to reinstall your operating system. this happens when a virus, something called w32. jini.recko^lok affcts the system.

you may also try to install an antivirus program which is up to date, to scan your system. But the bad news is that once this trojen affects your system most of the antiviruses are not successfully installed. The winodws installer service is locked or terminated by this trojen.

best thing to do is to recover and backup your data to any other disk. and repartition your disk and format and reinstal it.
