Computer Problems. Please help!

I have been having alot of errors on my computer. Windows errors, browser errors ect. At one point the error told me to reload windows. You can't do anything without the computer erroring out and freezing up. A big pain in the ass. I am wanting step by step instructions on how to completely wipe out my hard drive then reload windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

what type of PC is it?

i have had similar problems, and it was a bad stick of ram.

try this: http://hcidesign.com/memtest/

let it run for a while. see what it comes up with, other than that, you could just have some data corruption or some other B.S.

would a fresh install hurt your feelings?

I tested used and un-used RAM and let each run for about 20 minutes. There were no errors found.
I'll do a complete install if someone can walk me through it. On the tower is says it's an AMD Athlon XP.
