My computer is infected with many viruses, and I cant run any programs at all because it goes to the BSOD after like 1 minute of doing anything. I cant even get into safe mode at all because before it even gets into safe mode, it crashes with the BSOD. I literally can't do anything with my computer, because the BSOD crashes my computer every single time. I can't reformat either because Im pretty sure my computer didnt come with a XP CD, which you need to do a clean reformat. Should I just by a New Computer?

You should be able to call the PC manufacturer and purchase a XP resource CD from them.

Your PC may use a hidden partition on the hard drive to store the information needed to reinstall. You would have to ask in the XP forum about that. Provide you make and model.
