If you want to reinstall your OS you will need a copy of it from the manufacturer, or use the backup disk that either came with your computer, or the one you, hopefully, burned when you bought the computer.
I have done the proceedure hundreds of times.
A clean install is recomended when you have cluttered your PC to the point to where it is slowed.
Once you have the bootable Disk, please shoot me a message and I'll give you a walkthrough.
Good Luck

How to wipe a hard drive


Easiest was is to reformat the drive or reinstall your windows OS as a new install. Either way, will reformat the C: drive and wipe all data from the drive. You may have a security program that allows you to shred data. That, too, will work as it actually removes data rather than just removing the indexing files pointing to the date, such as emptying your waste basket does.

I CANT REMOVE THE VIRUS IN MY LAPTOP


If you cant remove the virus you have got, its often because your drive has been infected to a degree where qiping it for virus's is futile.
If thats the case, format your drive by booting your pc up with a windows install dvd in the drive, selecting the option to format C-drive before installing new operating system on the unit.

Most likely you Boot-section of your harddrive has been infected and therefore, everytime you boot your pc the virus loads as the first thing during start up of windows and drivers and so forth.
