Try an online scanner

It may help. Aside from that, it sounds like you may have some corrupt files. After scanning online, if it finds nothing, put in your XP cd and type sfc.exe /scannow in the start -- run box.

When you reinstalled Windows.....

... did you wipe the drive and start fresh, or did you do an install over the top of the old OS, leaving the virus on the hard drive?

Since you didn't tell us which virus you caught, it's impossible to tell you what to do. But, it's certainly possible that you caught a boot sector virus which wouldn't be gone, or even inactive, if you didn't FDISK and start over.
