My computer got infected with something last night (I was using avira free) and it seemed to wipe out everything. Instead of trying to fix it, I did a restore with backup (not sure if I'm using the right words).

Now I'm trying to install avira free antivirus but it says I need Windows XP 32 SP3, Windows XP 64 LP2 or Window Server 2003 SP2. When I look at what I have for Windows, it says I have version 5.1 (build 2600.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158 : Serivce pack 2)

Last year when someone here had me restore back to factory setting, I was able to install avira. I've tried several times now with no luck.
