Yeah the repair install unfortunately is going to be rather difficult without access to my cd-rom drive, it seems unable to read both CDs and DVDs (possibly as a result of an unrelated issue, though doubtful considering the timing.)
I have managed to copy over a rundll32.exe file into my system32 folder via a pen drive and now have access to the control panel.
My Internet explorer is completely unable to access the web, and I have lost the trademark Windows XP themes for some reason, leading me to believe that indeed some important windows files were deleted as a result of the Trojans.
Is there anyway to perhaps run a windows xp repair install from a pen drive or virtual drive?
I have also attached a copy of my current hijackthis log, stripped entirely of BHOs apparently, if someone could take a look at it I would be very grateful. I'll definitely be following Osiris's guide on top of that. Thanks in advance.
*update* yeah evidently the spyware is still not completly gone, as every time I do try to open internet explorer rundll32.exe attempts to install an dll file in the registry...
