Malware or a Virus or something -- corruption and lack of virtual memory?!

    It seems I have the absolute worst luck with this laptop, because here I am again with another virus or something.

    This is my Dell C640 laptop, Windows XP. I have this ANG Antivirus program, (which my computer practically forced me to buy via consistant popups and lack of any other sort of virus protection, etc), and Spybot Search and Destroy, which I thought was working pretty well. Spybot started to send me these popups, which like an idiot, I didn't fully read. There was an ALLOW button and a DENY button, and I think for about three of them I hit Allow, and basically allowed all kinds of Malware into my computer.

    Now my programs exit out by themselves, any type of Anti-Malware, Spyware anything becomes corrupted the moment it's saved to my computer so I can't use it, everything's freezing, programs already on my computer (such as Add or Remove Programs) won't open/are corrupted/ shut themselves off, and it's a mess. On top of that, I keep getting a little pop up saying I'm out of virtual memory? I'm wondering if that's actually relevant or if that's just my laptop being a jerk on top of anything else.

    Help would be much appreciated. My computer technician takes multiple days to get my laptop back to me whenever I bring it to him. -.-
