    My dad gets that error on every exe he tries to open. He was infected with a virus, actually several. Is there any way to fix the damage? As far as we can tell, we got rid of all the infected files. If we can't, how would we format the hard drive? It's an XP system.

    Put in the Windows XP cd and boot from it. If you go into your bios configuration you should be able to change the boot sequence. From there the installation will guide you through formatting and such.
