I downloaded a virus online and after installing a fresh windows i can't get past admin log on

i downloaded a virus online and after i got off, my desktop was blue and it said security guard  virus detected :"typhoon" something or other, please run virus scan. i did it did nothing so i did an emergency recovery of windows 2000 and it did nothing so i reinstalled windows completely, installation went fine and it let me choose my computer name and password, but when it came time to log on, it said administrator and god knows what the password is. i can't log onto my computer!!! Help.  Please be aware that I am a total computer illiterate, so be as gentle as you can with the solution steps. THANK YOU
