Hey, geeper needs help.
Ten days ago I came home to find my wifes computer on the blink (pun intended). The icons were blining very rapidly and would stop upon trying to access any programs which seem to load just fine. The internet loaded but slower than normal. I googled the problem and came up with superantivirus.com as a fix. Running the program came up with a trojan originating from shopathome.com, go figure. Anyway I rebooted and sure enough it DID NOT fix my problem so I rebooted again and that was the last time I saw windows XP Pro. What I saw next was the Dos screen where you have a choice of how you wan't to boot into windows, however I was unable to select an option, my keyboard was useless. I am looking for a Ps2 keyboard as sugested by my son to try because the former one is a USB keyboard. My son also suggested Combo fix and that's providing I can get into window One More Time. I also put my XP disc in and it would not load. And I am not sure this is a virus related problem.

I am not sure what my next step is and any help would be appreciated.

Buy the way I am new here Hello Everyone.
