Yes it is fixable...but that depends on what you are willing to loose and what you have on hand.
Those items that are guaranteed...are still infections sitting on your computer.
I'm presuming that the "recovery" you did was the factory install of the operating system, already partitioned on the drive?
If that's the case, chances are that partition is infected as well.
What I would suggest, is to format the drive and install Windows XP if you have the disc.
Unfortunately, an infected computer.....is an infected computer. unless you are very knowledgeable and are comfortable with going into your registry and manually removing files related to those viruses...your computer will be on a never ending course of disaster, especially with 120 items.

Yes there are virus programs out there that can help, but none are 100% curable.
Do you have access to a Windows Xp Cd with a legitimate CD key....that would be your best bet...to start from scratch with a clean install....
