Hard drive recognition problem?

My system got totally messed by a virus so had to redo everything. I reinstalled windows xp and pretty much wiped everything out. I have a 200 gb western digital hard drive and now window xp is only seeing 186 gb total with 156 gb free for use. Now I know that windows operating system will take some of it up but a whopping 46 gb. You folks have any idea why this is occuring? Please help.
