I ran the malwarebytes program and it found 3 adware which were removed.
What does the COA sticker say as to what OS came installed on it from Dell. That sticker is either on the side or back of the computer if a desktop or on the bottom or in the battery compartment if a Notebook.
Could be that XP SP3 CD you found is from an older Dell computer?
