    Hi pjohnston81

    I hope you are aware of the fact that once you format your hard drive you will loose all of your data from your system.

    If you wish we both can try to resolve the virus issue without formatting your hard drive.

    If it doesn't work I will and provide you with steps to format your system.

If you have a recovery CD, boot with it and follow the instructions, and if not, get a bootable operating system CD, you may boot the system with it and follow the instructions, and this will do you good.

HDD Reformatting

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.

How do i reformat

dude you can repair it by hard formatting, first save your phonebook to ur sim card coz it will all be erase if you save it to phone memory, next charge it, u must have 3/4 of ur battery so it won't freak out during formatting. all ur programs are all infected so don't waste time on saving it as well on the mmc and try formatting it too, on ur computer coz it will contaminate your phone if u do format it at your phone also.try formatting it first and when ur done formatting ur phone insert it so u'll have a nice clean mmc and phone.

here's what u do... turn off your phone and click and hold all together * , 3 , green dial key (callkey) and power key hold it and don't letgo until u see ur phone have the word formatting and there you go good as new u'll wait for about 3 min. by the way when u format dont touch any until you see the logo nokia.try also to install antivirus "mcafee virus scan"

email me if I have help.....gudluck
