NTFS is preferrable (assuming you've got XP).
After a reformat you'll have to reload the Windows updates from MS (unless you've got the Service pack CD) and, unfortunately, you could be hit by Sasser etc. during the download. It happened to me many times. I had to persevere and ignore the viruses for a while and after installing the updates I allowed my anti-virus to do its stuff.

Reading your message again I realise you want to do the sasser bit first and then the rest of the updates.
