Since you left out the name of the malware that is giving you the bogus
warnings, I can't point you directly to a website with removal steps.
Use the following link to look up the name of your malware:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum55.html

Then either follow the removal instructions or, if they seem too
complex, register at BleepingComputer for guided help. Read their
posting FAQ first.

Regarding the lack of an operating system disk, you may be able to clean
the malware off the computer and make it usable but if not then you will
need to purchase an operating system to do a clean install. Windows 2000
is not available anywhere legal for download.

If you cannot afford to purchase a Windows operating system, there are
many Linux distros that are free.
