If you did a full reformat then it is unlikely to be a virus.

Can you boot into safe mode? Getting that far probably means that Windows is all OK, but a program you've put on after loading windows is at fault.

Have you been using the XP CD to reformat etc? You could try formatting with a modified boot disk that will work for XP from click here. You'll have to FDisk, to delete and create a new partition, then Format to FAT32. Then put the XP CD in and it should run setup from there.

*You will lose all data on the drive*
