Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC

\015 I have an Emachines PC with Windows XP operating system. \302\240I've recently gotten a virus that did some damage to my files, and I just want to reload windows completely and start from scratch. \302\240This computer didn't come with an operating system install disk - instead the o/s is built into the hard drive on a separate drive called "Recovery" (D drive). \302\240\015\012\015\012How do I go about relaoding windows on this computer? \302\240Any help is appreciated. \302\240Thanks!\015\012\015\012SHawna\015
