hi there

i have big problems here and would appreciate any help.My brother was on the pc and he was using it for about half an hour and this red icon came up on the bottom right saying we got infected by a virus.he shut down the pc and now i cant get it to start up again,not even in safe mode.It turns on,says loading personal settings(my pc is configured to load me right in without me doing anything)then a black screen,this even happens in safe mode.I went into dos and found virus like popuper.exe(in windows dir),system32.exe(windows dir),intmon.exe,intmonp.exe,shnlog.exe,msole32.exe.I now dont know wot to do.Is there any way to reinstall windows xp without my programs not working afterwards?Because programs that use the registry wont work anymore after or is there something else i can do? Any help will be apprecciated.

Try Here if you want to re-install, the Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation allows for keeping the data and settings, remember to also install all the service packs
