I recently formatted my pc after having a virus and would like to know if I should install the drivers for grapchics card which is gerforce fx 5500 and I have windows xp.
If yes how should I do it?
The problem is it finds a lot of temp files, when moving windows its slow and programmes like flight simulator dont run well as they were before format.
Any suggestions?

if you want the games to run better yes. You just put in the disc that came with the card.If you don't have it go to google and search for the drivers. I am sure the manufacturers website will have it available for downloading.
