Formatting hard drive and re-installing windows xp

  hockeystar1985 19:52 09 Jun 2004

My PC is bogged down with viruses and my anti-virus software isn't working. I want to format my hard drive completely and then re-install windows xp. I have tried the repair option but that hasn't worked, any suggestions? Also any suggestions on a good anti-virus program, pop up blocker and spam guard?
