First, Please take off the CAPSLOCK. Typing in all Capitals is regarded as shouting.
Second, Since you have not given us any information on the virus or the process undertaken to remove it we have little chance of advising on steps (if any ) to repair your current installation. You may in fact be better served to get a linux bootable CD and arrange to copy your important files & documents to external media, then wipe & re-install your operating system.
You may get away with booting to your XP Install CD and doing a repair-install over the top of your current system.
Q? Will the RUN box come up from your Start menu at present?
You may try to run the command SFC /SCANNOW with the XP Install CD in the drive. This is supposed to restore system files and may help.

If it boots up try the EXE fix here:

Sometimes viruses leave the exe file associations screwed up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
