It's LAPtop, not LABtop. The following is an example of a labtop:

In fact, isn't the Acer One a netbook? So rather than wiping out the malware, you'd rather completely wipe the hard drive, except that you don't know how? Good plan. Does your Acer One have a CD/DVD drive? If not, you'll need an external CD/DVD drive, although you may be able to run the installation from a USB flash drive, if you know how to set it up.

Before you start, make sure you have all the necessary drivers - chipset, video, audio, network, wireless, etc. You'll also need the SATA (aka AHCI) drivers to get your hard drive recognized. XP will NOT install without the SATA driver. Do you have an XP disk? If not, is there some sort of Acer recovery system built in? Did you read your Acer manual?
