To answer your questions, re-installing XP will take your computer settings back to the start, with no viruses, no programs and no hassles. It'll be nice and clean. However, it won't mean that it's now back to the "Out of the box" state. To get that done, you will have to put in a new harddrive.
Re-installing XP frequently won't do any harm to your computer. It's much like re-installing a new application. Just make sure that your crucial files are backed up on a flash disc or floppy.
There you go, hope that's what you're looking for.

Also, while I am having this "Brain Fart", am I correct in thinking that I can set up different User Accounts that will change to a specific configuration. This way I could test several configurations instead of doing an "XP repair" frequently?

Also, if I do back up's as I go, can I run these back up's and will my configurations change to what they were when I made the back up? Again, any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Newt
Yes. It will repair all your settings.

No. User accounts all share the same computer configuration settings, except Desktop, Pictures, Music etc.
