    If I have a dual hard drive system, and I have a virus that resides only on the C drive, can I just take what I need (files, photos, etc.) and put it on my D drive, then reformat C to get rid of the virus??

    Yeah, as long as you're sure nothing bad is on D. After you reformat and reload Windows, the first thing you'll want to do is load and update your antivirus and run a full scan just to be sure.
