Default Recovery Disk Not Working

Basically, I got a virus on my computer which meant that I could not get into windows XP. However, it also meant that I couldn't get into MSDOS.

So, I got my recovery disk and attempted to restore it to factory setting. However, it can't find the information on the boot disk. So, my computer keeps starting and resetting.

Is there anyway I can get another boot disk? Or make my current one work? Or anything?

I really dont want to have to buy another PC.

Btw, I'm using a mac to write this and I have to say.. thank god they dont get viruses!!!
