Have you tried clicking F8 while the computer is booting up, and then clicking LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION?

If you cannot even get that far you will need to go to the malware forum to get help. Otherwise The only other option is to use a XP CD to do a Repair install on the system. You will need a XP CD to do this.
