    Hm, really sounds like the old xp is completly messed by the former virus, provided it was sitting in an important system file - which now was cleaned (deleted) by the scanners, I guess, there is no hope left. During the new install there was no option to repair the old xp? If so, the installer did not even recognize it as valid OS and therefore I do not know how to help anymore, I am very sorry!

    One thing I have done for many that I fixed this virus or rather it's a type od spyware that has hijacked your pc and or browser. Take the drive out and slave to another xp machine or vista doesn't matter. Run a full sector by sector scan on the drive in question. Also xp will often notice corrupt files if connected and will try to repair but if the spyware, malware, or virus it shouldn't fix it as stated above. It can be fixed. I would say unless you have data that you can afford I would wipe and reload. Not just a reload. Slaving it will allow you to get your pics, most soca, etc. The problem is pretty much in the profile and could be system files but it is 99% in the profile. I have just renamed the profile and drag the items over AFTER CREATING AND LOGGING ON WITH NEW PROFILE. When all that looks good SHIFT+DEL to remove the old profile. In fact I would do the profile thing fix. Their is a cutoff point at some point and you should be able to fix with one of the two. Let us know if you get it resolved or still have trouble..
