Please Restart your computer and get to 'safemode'.you can do this by pressing F8 before your window starts up then selecting safe mode from the options available.When u get into the safe mode,there will be a pop up menu asking u something,click 'no' button and then click 'restore my computer to a previous state'.you will be shown a calender,you should click the date before your friend gave you the virus,and then start the system restore.after sometime your computer will restart and everything will be all right.

Hello,

Right click My Computer, select Properties, choose System Restore and turn off SR on all drives.

Then, do all the manual removals you posted before. Then, go to this url:
http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner
and run the full virus scan on all drives.

Because the files you note as infected are actually required by XP to run, you may not actually be able to go online, still try not to remove those files if possible, once they are removed you will have to restart your machine with the XP Disc and tell it to install, load any specific drivers needed such as those for your raid array if you have one, only when Setup tells you Windows is already installed, select Repair instead of New and Windows will heal your system.

So, because of those critical files being corrupted, don't be too surprised that when your online scan asks you to clean your system that your system freezes or halts at some point. Just be prepared with your Windows disc and Product Key.

I'll be available for any follow up questions you may have just comment back to me by clicking on my user name and then Ask Me.

Regards,
Worldvet

If you don't get a satisfactory answer to this let me know by clicking my name and then ask me. Your request to Chat keeps popping up on my machine (twice now) indicating you may not find the early offers helpful.

If you are happy with your chats so far just discard this note.
