Recently contracted a virus. Normally pretty handy with manual removal and self research but so far i've found nothing.

Heres whats happening:
Explorer wont load upon booting in normal or safe mode.
System restore is disabled (was enabled before virus) will only let me restore to the present once enabled.
I can ping google from cmd but cannot access any pages even from safemode
I can open task manager, msconfig, regedit.
I cannot open explorer manually
I cannot open control panel

I have read up on the explorer virus and searched through the regedit and found no duplicates or explorer files where the virus history says it might be.

When i go to open explorer or control panel manually it appears at first as if it was loading then disapears without opening

And explorer is not listed under my running apps in tm.

Sidenotes: I am running xp pro sp3 and i do not have the disk.

Any help or redirection would be greatly appreciated.
