Please post back the exact error message. Are you prompted to "Press Any Key to boot disk" first? Do you see the disk loading before the message. Is it possible it is bypassing the CD and trying to boot the HD?

You will need to be able to boot the CD to repair this.

Perhaps you can make a video or take camera snaps of this attempt to boot CD as well as the smiley-face you said you get when it attempts to boot HD. Attach the pics using paper clip in reply box, upload video to Youtube and attach link.

The error likely means the HD (not the CD) is trying to boot and is infected.

Can you boot the CD on another PC? Is it in good condition, clean and unscratched? Do you have access to another XP CD for the same version and OEM/retail channel to try booting?

Try running Windows Defender Offline from bootable USB stick or CD, or another of the FREE Bootable AntiVirus Rescue CDs Download List .
