My advice is to reinstall again and keep the internet cord unpluged until you get antivirus installed from a cd or a flashdrive.once you got antivirus hook up and install all of the update and no other websites.

If you need to uninstall a bad Service Pack 2, go to Start, Click on the Control Panel option. In the Control Panel, click on Add/Remoce Programs. In the Add or Remove Programs screen, check the box at top for "Show Updates." Scroll down to Windows XP Service Pack 2 and click on remove. Then follow the onscreen instructions
Now the safest way to get a new Service Pack 2 would be to go to Start > Control Panel > Automatic Updates and then click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web Site (but before you select that, you might want to click on Automatic (recommended) so that Windows will update itself from now on). Anyway, after you click on Install updates from the Windows Update Web SIte, internet explorer will open and take you to the website and it will want to run an Activ-X control, click on the yellow bar that appears and click install. On the gray "Express" box this will cause it to look for updates that you NEED and it will install them. If you're using a laptop make sure you have it plugged into the wall, ifyou're battery dies during installation you can destroy your installation of Windows.
You will need to update XP to Service Pack 3. Just Google "XP Service Pack 3" and follow instructions, OR go to http://www.microsoft.com/update - this will also update your browser to Internet Explorer 8.
You can install Firefox with no special updates, but it would be better to update to SP3 anyway.
you can, but not through windows update. you can still get critical updates. If you can find the service packs elsewhere, you can then install them. I carry on a usb key service pack 1a 2 and 3, because a lot of my customers are still on dial up.
here is sp3 for windows xp: http://www.soft32.com/download_123572.html

causes Automatic Updates to no longer recognize that updates are needed, leaving
the computer in a vulnerable state until Service Packs and updates are
re-applied. go to either the Windows Update or Microsoft Update web sites and install any
needed Windows Service Packs or updates.
You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.
