First, defrag the hard drive if you haven't already.
Save important files on a USB drive.
Install Linux, or get Norton and clean up the mess

This is going to be harder than I thought....

Click start, all programs, accessories, disk defragmenter. Select drive C: (or D:, aw heck, do em both if they show up) and click defragment. Go to bed, it may be done by morning.

It won't during defrag, it might go into sleep mode, but defrag will keep running.

Here's a diagram that will explain how a computer works:

See? it's easy when explained in terms you are familiar with.

Vista? Uuugh. Just when everyone gets the hang of XP....

If you have a Trojan, good luck, Your best bet is to save all you personal files on a external hardrive or CD's, and reformat. it will put your computer back to its orginal settings, basically how it was when you first received it.
