Sorry about that BBcode overhang in the previous post, but I've had long weekend

I have started another reload of XP but how do you avoid viruses, because you have to reinstall broadband modem to be able to do windows update (SP1 patches etc) AVG install etc; but I seem to cop them before getting a chance to do everything.

Try turning on the XP firewall before going on-line. It will give you basic protection while you update.

spot on.If your firewall will allow, it set it to allow traffic to the site that you require to upgrade and [u]only[/u] that site.It may pay you to download stinger and keep it on your desktop,in case you need it, for a while but remember that stinger is upgraded from time to time and so it will rapidly become outdated.But for now it may give you peace of mind.
