XP Home Securtiy Malware

Hello, recently my mother's netbook was infected with a program called xp home security 2012. It's clearly a fake virus protection service. The only problem is, my mother's computer is a netbook, and netbooks dont have dvd drives so I cant use a boot cd. She doesn't have virus protection either. I looked up any ways to combat this problem but that just led to more suspicious websites. If any of you have experience dealing with this issue or have a good idea, please share it with me.

Thanks a ton
