I have been hard at work at trying to resolve this problem, but its taking me quite a while. Basically i got this virus from a USB which had Uniblue programs on it, i was going to work on another computer which has the same same malware doctor problem. It seems as i used the USB on this computer it got infected as well. For one when Windows XP PRO loads usually explorer.exe doesnt either, ive been able to get around this by restarting the computer a couple times. After explorer.exe works i get the malware doctor program running, which has disabled the task manager, registry editor and would hide folder options. I have been able to get around this by working with the gpedit.msc, until recently i had been getting popups with errors like so 0x77c460ad has encountered a problem, 0x00000007 memory could not be read, which would disable the task manager, registry editor, and folder options, forcing me to re-enable them. Currently i have been deleting the most recent files in the system32 folder.
Through several reboots, i still havent been able to remove it completely, and i need some help, i was able to download the hijackthis program but i cannot install it. Im using firefox currently and it seems the virus automatically closes some windows with key words in them. Hope this was clear enough, and hope you guys can help me.
As of now i get this error:
