My "svchost.exe" and "explorer.exe" are infected with trojan horse Adload_r.AKC (according to AVG), AVG also came up with 149 warnings which were tracking cookies, and i deleted those... My "chrome.exe" was infected as well and after re-instillation is no longer infected (and wasn't infected until this Trojan horse threat showed up) they've infected other programs as well since they have shown up on my scans, and after a lot of work i've managed to remove all infected files except "explorer.exe" and "svchost.exe" because i can't remove those. AVG states that the "object is inaccessible" and cannot fix them, and when i open up task manager i find 8 "svchost.exe" files running which i'm pretty sure isn't normal, please help

Data from AVG:

"C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE (196)";"Trojan horse Adload_r.AKC";""
"C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE (196):\memory_001a0000";"Trojan horse Adload_r.AKC";"Object is inaccessible."

"C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe (1044)";"Trojan horse Adload_r.AKC";""
"C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe (1044):\memory_001a0000";"Trojan horse Adload_r.AKC";"Object is inaccessible."

also, i no longer have the windows xp startup disk, so that is not an option for me

and i am running windows xp professional, 32-bit (SP3) if that helps
