Thanks for any helped or suggestions received.
I have a machine infected with the following
 Win32.Neshta.A [PCTools]
 W32.Neshuta [Symantec]
 Virus.Win32.Neshta.a [Kaspersky Lab]
 W32/HLLP.41472.e [McAfee]
 PE_NESHTA.A [Trend Micro]
 W32/Bloat-A [Sophos]
 Virus:Win32/Neshta.A [Microsoft]

Following the removal instructions is easy enough but the damage its caused is another story.
It seems most exe files have been infected with the neshta virus. So far, Ive yet to find a clean/cure for those exe files. I would prefer not to redo the machine if at all possible but at this point it seems to be the case. If anybody has some suggestion its much appreciated.

(Edit) i should also mention that avast, kaspersky, and microsoft failed to repair the exe files. I'm running XP pro which needs to be patched. Avast is currently on the system and persistently pops up that an ".exe" file is invected when browseing through folders.
