If you are reinstalling the operating system that should be sufficient to wipe out everything on the hard drive. The only time you may need to take more action is if you have a rootkit.

If the pc is still bootable why not ask about virus removal in the security forum, may be possible to remove the virus and save all your stuff?

DO NOT DEGAUSS. It will make the drive unusable. The platters all have a clock track on them so the head can sync properly. Degaussing will wipe that track and it a boat anchor from there.
