You could do a system restore ( see below ) or a full format and install a free OS such as Linux.
Do you have a CD burner, blank CDs and your XP product key ( you may need to enter this ) the product key may be on a sticker on the case somewhere, possibly the side or the rear with a desktop or the base of a notebook type computer.
Insert a blank CD in your CD-ROM drive.
Go to the "Start" button in the bottom left corner of you desktop.
Scroll up and click "Programs" or "All Programs." Scroll over and select "Accessories."
Scroll down and choose "System Tools" and then scroll over and hit "Backup."
Select "Advanced Mode" in the first window.
Select "Automated System Recovery Wizard." tap the "Next" button.
Browse to the blank CD that you inserted under "Backup Media." Click "OK" and click "Next."
You may need to insert more CDs as the process continues.
Click the "Finish" button.
Hope this helps and let us know how it goes.
