I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble.
1. What make/model is your computer?
2. Do you have your Windows CD?
3. Do you have a CD with all the device drivers?
4. Have you made a backup of your data?

I do have windows XP CD.
I do have driver Cd for Mother Board.
I just recently got an external drive and backed up some data before my PC became impossible to control.

Once Windows has finished installing and you're back at the desktop, you'll need to install drivers. Install Chip Set drivers first, then NIC (so you can get online). Then go to the Device Manager and install the remaining drivers.
Next, install your antivirus, especially if you are going to be online to pull drivers, etc.
Then install your other software and peripherals. Be sure to disable real-time protection on your AV, so it doesn't interfere with the installs. Or you could move AV until last (just be careful online).
Finally, restore you data and files.

I thought you wanted to format/reinstall.
You can try to repair Windows. But if you suspect you have Malware, I don't know if that will be successful. Here are the instructions.
*** Be aware, repairing Windows does not cause you to lose any data or files, but you will have to reinstall other software you had installed, as well as device drivers and all the Windows hotfixes and updates that you've installed since you put the computer intos service.
To repair Windows, put the Windows CD in your CD drive. Power the computer down, then power it back on.
When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD. If you don't get this message the first time, reboot and press F12 for the boot menu when the Windows splash screen first appears.
When you see the following message displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER....
To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.....
At this point an option to press R to enter the Recovery Console is displayed.
Do not select this option.....
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement screen, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press the R key to repair Windows XP......
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.....
This will repair XP and put everything back to as it first was.....
Again, you will have to reinstall any Hotfixes and OS updates. You may have to reinstall other software you had installed.

Reset the computer's CMOS. Please do the following:
- Turn off your computer
- Remove the power cord from the back of your computer
- Open the side panel
- Locate the CMOS battery (it's shiny stainless steel about the size of a nickel) and remove it
- Wait at LEAST five minutes
- Put the CMOS battery back in
- Re-attach the side panel
- Re-attach the power cord to the back of the computer
- Power on your computer
