I solved the problem by doing a repair install of XP Pro after I had backed up all of the data files to a flash drive by booting from Bart PE builder. XP warned that all documents may be deleted, but none were. The repair install from the original XP Pro CD deleted all Windows files, then continued like a first time installation of XP. That solved the problem. The hard drive's data remained intact, but the programs will have to be installed. Once the XP installation was complete, all Microsoft high priority updates and MSE installed, I downloaded the most recent MBAM and ran it. MBAM found the malicious malware file: 22CC6C32.exe in this folder: c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\22CC6C32.exe This is a very bad malicious malware that comes attached to a message. Good luck with anyone else who gets infected with this.
