Can't do anything on computer

I was just wondering if anyone could help me. I have a pc with windows xp on it, and it's quite outdated. Recently, I don't know what happened, but everything was wiped off the computer. I had to start from scratch, (which wasn't so bad since I never used it), but since then I've been using it quite often. I download from torrent websites occasionally, and was warned that I have a trojan on my computer.

I went on to filehippo.com, as the reboot from earlier erased all previous anti-virus protection. As soon as I found out about the virus, I began trying to download new anti-virus programs such as AVG, Avanti, and a couple more. NONE of them worked, but this one "Protection System" kept telling me I had a virus, as did a regular virus-warning pop-up by windows.

Anywho, it said the virus infected iexplorer and now I'm not able to access ANYTHING on my computer. I rebooted it, and not even the task manager will pop up, not to mention the bottom task bar.

What should I do!? I am unable to do anything with this computer and I REALLY don't want to delete anything I have on the computer!

Please help! :)
