Hello,

Welcome to Geeks To Go! My name is Paul and I would like to help you with your situation.
Question:

  Cannot install any programs to remove viruses or correct registry. Everything hangs. When i try to execute a piece of software that i have installed i get an error 82. It always uses 100% of cpu usage and states it is not responding in the task manager. I cannot begin to understand how to fix. format drive and start from clean drive?

Answer:
You may need to do a clean install of Windows XP if this fix does not work. I reccomend that you try a Windows XP System Repair. This will repair Windows XP but not any of your files or programs. I would go ahead and give this a try before you do a clean install. Good luck! :tazz:

Do you have access to safe mode? Many malware removal tools can be used in safe mode.
