response #2 - in regards to installing a new o.s., there is always a possibility that you have a boot virus - but we don't really know what kind of infection you had or have.

i'm basing my suggestions for executing a manual restore on the presumption that your anti virus did zap the initial infection and you simply need to restore missing or corrupted system files.

however, if all your efforts to salvage what you have fail, you can install xp from scratch.
