I have lost all plug and play functions on my computer. I dont know if I had a worm or virus but in any case I have done a full scan and deledted any problems. How can I get all my p&p functions back without a clean install. HELP

Try a system file scan go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space between sfc and /) you will need your XP CD

I think you enable it in the BIOS. Have to dash, will check back later.

Didn't read you post properly, ignore my advise, thats what to try if nothing else works not the first things you should try.
Plug and play normally has to be set in the BIOS as Graham ® says. I think more info is needed. What exactly is not working?

I mean everything. Anything to do with plug and play will not work. printer scanner sound etc
