    stick in he cd & follow the promps windows is very easy to install, at 1 point ya can take a quick nap & it;'ll just go through the proccess on its own (about 1/2 way through i think)
    7 scvchosts sounds like a virus prob you should have 3-4
    quite a few viruses pretend to be scvchost
    do u have a decent virus scannr & keep it updated?

    oh & if it is a virus just reinstalling may not fix it you can either remove the virus, or, reformat, you might be ok with just reinstalling, but then again u might not

    Don't try to reinstall windows on top of itself, you will have problems. You have to reformat your hard drive first. Go to www.bootdisk.com, download the dos 6.0 bootdisk file, and run it to copy it to a floppy. Turn your computer off, stick the floppy in, and boot it from the floppy. You should get a dos prompt, type fdisk. Delete every partition you have. Take out the floppy and put the windows cd in, it should be self-explanatory from there :)

    Feel free to PM me if you need more help.
