I need to format my PC as I had a nasty virus. I`m not very intelligent with these things and haven`t done it before, Can anyone tell or show me how to do this in plain english?

Many thanks in advance

just boot the pc with the xp cd in the drive and click on install. you have 2 options - just a complete new installation or after it has started the installation you get the option to press R to repair the installation.

go into the BIOS and change boot up priority to cd/dvd drive. Put your windows disk in and restart the PC when it asks for boot from cd press any key , do it and then sit back and wait
