My email notification says, you said:

I press one when it asks "Which Windows installation would you like to log on to?" then a white square pops-up next to it and it freezes.

Is it what happens?

Do you have Windows CD?
Did you have any problems with the machine before malware/SP3 removal (other, than malware issues, of course)?

I have these CDs: Gateway Drivers disk, a Gateway SoundBlaster Live! Value Software Restore (I think that is useless), and a Gateway Operating System- Windows Xp Home Edition.

Gateway Operating System- Windows Xp Home Edition is most likely recovery CD, which will erase all your data, and return the computer to its original state.
Do you have important data there?

Let's check couple more things.
If you have more, than one RAM stick installed, try to start the computer with only one stick at a time.
Let me know.

Turn the computer off.
Re-seat RAM (see, if you have more, than one stick), and video card (if any).
Disconnect everything from the computer, but monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Try starting it again.

Alright, so just disconnect everything, then put it back together and try it again?
