Before you ask, no I am not running safemode. I have consulted many people and the majority consensus says that I have a virus and I cannot remove it. Here is an overview of my issues:

My Windows Defender has been disabled and I cannot reactivate it.

When I attempt to run a system restore an error message pops up that states: "System Restore will not help protect your computer. Please restart your computer, and try System Restore again."

When I attempt running in Safe Mode (Through pressing F8 in boot) it does absolutely nothing to help correct my issues no matter which version of Safe Mode I run.

I have no Internet connectivity on that PC even though I do on my lap top, Xbox 360, and PSP. (3 different browsers do NOT work and applications which access the internet report having no connection.)

I do not have the reinstall disks for Windows XP as I purchased my computer several years ago and I have essentially lost them during several moves I have made.

I need this PC for college as I take my classes online so any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated and I would be happy to give more information if needed.
