Hi, hope someone can help.

My system is Win XP Professional, Media Center Edition 2005

IE not working, it just closes when I try to open it, so I cannot update windows, Malwareabytes etc or surf the Net. However, I can access Second Life ok through its shortcut icon.

Ran Malwareabytes, it found Rootkit Agent and removed it but my PC would not reboot, I could only restart by selecting "Last Known Good Configuration". I cannot access Safe Mode even. If I run MAB again, it detects Rookit Agent and goes through the same process. AVG does not fix it either.

Would appreciate any advice. Thank you.

It looks like MAB wants to delete the file on a restart but as my PC will not restart properly, it cant. All I can use is "Last Known Good" which brings me back to where I started.
