If you just formatted the partition with the second XP installation on there, it should remove the boot menu where you choose which installation to go to. Here are a few options for you to choose from.
Option One: Open Start-Run and enter msconfig Click
the tab "BOOT.INI" The contents of the boot.ini file are shown and a
number of configuration settings are available. Under Operating systems,
delete the one you don't want. Be careful not to delete the wrong one.
Right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties" from the context
menu. The System Properties dialog box will open. In the section
"Startup and Recovery" click the button "Settings". To delete the
unwanted operating system from the boot display menu, use the "Edit"
button on the right of the entry.
Option Three: If the OS is Windows XP Professional, it has a command line utility for manipulating boot.ini called bootcfg.exe. Click start, type CMD, click OK and you are presented with the command prompt. Type bootcfg /? It will list the description and parameter list. Once again, you can delete the unwanted OS.
Option Four: Boot to the XP install disk and open up the command prompt utility of the disk. Enter "fixmbr" and press enter. Restart the computer and remove the disk.
Do the following

Warning: Be careful while editing the registry for you may crash ur operating system if you do something wrong
I have seen this several times and it is brought about due to a virus that creates an autorun file (autorun.ini).
In this file when you double click the drive, executes the file and in the autorun file exists any of the following: - Microsoftpowerpoint.exe smss.exe .... or many others.
It is good thing that you have a strong antivirus which seems to have removed the viruses and therefore when the information file is opened, it does not find the executables it was supposed to run. That is why it asks for a program to open.
You can prove this by right clicking on the drive to see a shortcut menu and in this menu, the bolded menu will be the action taken when double clicked and the possibility is that you will find Autorun bolded.
To resolve the issue do the following: 1) Open My computer program or windows explorer. 2) Right click on the drive and open or explore it. 3) Locate the file Autorun and delete it. If the file is not shown, from the folder options choose show all files. This is because sometimes this file may be hidden.
Try double clicking the drives again to see if you get he same error.
NOTE: Many virus developers have made possible for people to install/run viruses in there own computers by simply double clicking the drives like flash disk.
Your context menu (the menu when you right-click eg on the C: drive is most probably corrupt or set wrong (the dafault action is set to Open With ... and it should be "Open" - as an alternative till you fix it, just right-click on the c: drive and select Open from the drop-down menu
