Try a System Restore back to before you received the email.

Stable-door perhaps, but - NEVER open unknown, unexpected, un-called for emails, NEVER NEVER NEVER!

XP, first back up any important data and then reinstall XP by inserting the disc and restarting the computer. As it restarts hit the F12 key and boot from the disc and follow the instructions. This will wipe out the hardrive and leave it clean. or use cc clearner.
