We have a 2003 Standard Ed Server that was recently infected with the Sality virus. It corrupted the Symantec corp Ed 10d antivirus, and has caused problems with my .NET. I have am fairly IT literate, and have removed this infection off of other 2003 servers, but this one I can not get clean. I am able to run Malwarebytes, and Super Antispyware. They find the infection (Sality, and a Rootkit), and request reboot to delete, but it always re-infects. I run a Reg fix everytime I reboot to get into Safe Mode. I am unable to run alot of the recommended utilities because they will not run on Server 2003 (such as Combo fix). I have attempted to run the following tools:
Sality_off/ Sality-AVG/ Sality - Symantec/ Malwarebytes/ Super Antispyware/ Spybot/ stinger/ SDFix-asquared(only in normal mode command prompt)

I have deleted all *.tmp files, all related files in temporary folders. Reset IE to default. Disabled Print & File Sharing. Removed bogus svhost user account, and deleted files. All tools have been attempted in multiple Safe Mode reboots with network cables unplugged. I have ran sfc /scannow.

I can only work on this server after hours as we need it for our daily activities, and I am tired of spending my nights at work. I cannot run dds, but I will attach the logs for HJT, and the result logs from Malwarebytes, Super Antispyware, and a-squared, however I know there are alot of false positives in the a-squared log. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
