That most likely won't work. If you have an OEM install, eg, from
eMachines, Dell, etc., and you install with a standard XP Pro CD, the
product key won't be accepted. If you install from the hidden partition
on the machine, (possibly the F11 key during boot), the machine will be
reformatted, and you'll lose any personal data, not saved elsewhere.

Burn BitDefender, or another program listed at the link below, to a CD
(using a working machine) and test the infected machine with it.
BitDefender also has a Rootkit checker on the Linux Desktop; run it if
you think that's the problem:

Download the executable rather than the .iso image, if one is
available.. it prompts you to insert a CD and burns the file, no problem.

Then run these:

Malwarebytes├é┬ę Corporation

SuperAntispyware
