I am having a very difficult problem and probably have made it worse by self-fix. Last Friday my computer started acting as if it was infected because I had intermittant errors showing up, such as my Office toolbar suddenly was inop and could not be found when booting. After online research I expected root-kit problems, possibly tdss. I ran fsbl and autoruns and followed instructions to clean/repair. Things improved but when viewing autorun listings I found quite a few suspicious entries all dated and timed around the time my trouble started. I removed some of them from auto running but they reappeared on restart. i then removed them from autorun and deleted them from the registy and my computer suddenly takes 15-20 mins to boot and I have lost my local network connections. I am now on another computer on the same network, the problem computer is booted and I can run programs. If needed I can download utilities and transfer via thumbdrive. Can anyone offer advice on diagnostic tools to start fixing this issue?

Forgot to say, the OS is Win2000, Nod32 is installed and reported no errors in the last few days.
