Hey. I had a topic here because my computer got infected. I was told that it could not be fully trusted if we tried to just remove the Malware and it was probably best to format. This is not my main computer at this moment, but it was for some time. I've put some documents that I need onto a flash drive so I guess I'm ready to do this. I have no idea about anything like this, so any help I could is highly appreciated.

Hey Davis, Insert your Windows XP disc and reboot the computer and as it's booting up keep pressing the enter key.
