Well, doesn't look like it makes sense to anyone else either. I'll post what I found out in case it helps anyone else later on. I can't figure out what could possibly be the problem, but booting from the XP CD and running the repair doesn't fix it. The problem seems to be limited to profiles that where logged in to while the system was infected. So I logged into an account that hadn't been accessed during that time and deleted the profiles (just the data for the profile, not the user from Active Directory / Computer Management) that had the problem. I also copied the good profile over the default user, but I don't know if that step was necessary. When the user logs back in their profile is re-created from the default user, and doesn't have the problem. Make sure you backup the My Documents, Desktop, Favorites, and email from the profiles you delete, so you can restore them after the profile is re-created.
Hope that helps someone in the future
