:iagree: Yes it has: Dee has given you the procedure. Boot in safe mode (F8 - if you don't know how to do that, just google "safe mode F8 XP"), flash your drive, then reboot normally.
If you really want to get rid of the VIA drivers (assuming they have been installed, which is not clear from your input), just uninstall them and reboot the comp. XP will then automatically install the MS drivers. No-brainer.
