Dell Gx270, Major Computer Crash, nothing is working

\015 Well, Here's the story...I have a Dell Pentium 4 Optiplex Gx270. I, unfortunately had downloaded some videos, not smart, and it ended up catching a few trojans. Well, I went to restart it so I could do a system restore, and that's when it all started.\015\012\015\012It starts up ok but when it gets to the usernames and logins, it is a problem. It takes forever to log in, if at all, and it's a much higher resolution than before, so I have no way to go to system restore to set it back a couple months. \015\012\015\012Because of these problems, my mouse won't work. It's a laser cord mouse, and I have also tried my cordless and it doesn't work either of them.\015\012\015\012I would reload window's xp on there, but unfortunately, I don't have a way to get the disk. I have no money either. Does anyone know possibly what I could do to manually fix it?\015\012\015\012Any help would be appreciated. Thank you\015

If you have a legal COA for window XP on your computer you can use anyone's dell reinstall disc. Your original info is stored in the BIOS. Now if you can't find anyone with a dell windows XP reinstall disc I saw a place that sells them for $19: found it
