After a day or two of this I also started getting this error: "The instruction at 0x001a3b41 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be 'read'." I had ran MB and Spybot again so maybe I cleaned out something I shouldn't have. In any event I tried system restore, and all the anti malware I know. I also ATF cleaner and a few miscellaneous fixes I found on similar posts but nothing stops this error from disabling my computer. My theory is there is still some remnant of the malware trying to activate or get to the internet and slowing, and eventally stopping, everything else while it does. I can't see it thought and everythign in msconfig appears legit. Any ideas how to get around this other than completely wiping and reinstalling Windows? I have checked dozens of posts for this problem and none seem to be exactly what I have.
P.S. I am running Windows XP Pro with service pack 3 with symantec antivirus and monthly Spybot and Adaware scrubs.
