Help me get XP reinstalled and back and running quickly

My Dell M65 laptop has been thoroughly rinsed by a virus infection. I've tried everything I can, but I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and completely reinstall windows. The laptop does have a restore partition, so I'm planning to use that.
What do I need to think/do in order to get back up and running as quickly as possible?

What am I going to forget? I'm thinking of things like making sure I reinstall my auto-correct entries for Word and my plugins for GIMP.
I know this has been asked before, but that was a while ago, and a slightly different question.
And yes, I'm planning to make room for an Linux install this time
