Can't log into windows xp

Specs: Windows XP
Had some type of virus. Ran avast and a lot of files were infected, had it clean them up. Now I get to the log on screen and it ask for a pw, never had a pw so i can't log in. When i push enter with no pw it logs on for a second and then logs out and back to the log in window. I have a XP CD but there is no option for me to run it. Tried safe mode and all the other options but nothing works, I think it's screwed... any ideas?

You could try running Kaspersky Rescue disk (do a Google search & you'll find it) - a Linux based boot disk that will scan for viruses and also has a file manager on there, should you wish to recover any data. If that doesn't work then a reinstall is probably your easiest option.
