How can I wipe my computer, uninstall XP, get rid of the virut, and install Windows 7?

I have already backed up my important files.

I don't have any Windows CDs but I can download 7 once my computer is empty?

Where do you intend to download Windows 7 from??

To completely wipe a hard drive and the virus, you need to zero it out using Active Killdisk [Free version]
