I want to reinstall Windows XP, but will upgrading to Windows 7 have the same effect of tidying up Windows as well as giving me the updated software?

Only install windows 7 if your machine is capable of running it

If you upgrade or reinstall make sure you backup all your data photo emails drivers etc. first.

reinstall XP will tidy up your system but will not give you updated software.only what on the XP disc you already installed from If this is from a OS disc you will then need to reinstall your programs,

If its a restore to factory settins disc you will still need to install any programs you have added. and update from microsoft

Fruit Bat has advised on Win 7 whatever you decide back up your data first to an external disc or drive as it will be lost
