16bit problems in XP

I expect that I have a virus / trojan on my computer, since I can't use 16bit programs anymore in XP and my computer became very slow.
After installing Adware and removing a trojan (Exploit ByteVerify), I copied the autoexec.nt, config.nt and command.com. The trojan keeps coming back and I can't solve the problem. I turned off System Restore in XP.

There is also a program which I never installed: "preview adservice" and if I delete it, it returns after restart.

Please help me out, since this is really anoying...

Attached is a screendump after a Adware scan.

regards,
Ties
