I have included a screen shot of the situation, a report with the antivirus results and a hijackthis log (in case you need it?)
Thank you very much for your attention and help!

Adaware 2007 is removing .exe files it could be detecting some sort of infection or corruption with the file
Are you saying Adaware removed the file by way of removing ad stuff or when it was installed? I know you said 'could' Mr. Freeze. so it possibly didn't.
Anyway I thought uninstall Adaware should replace any file it removed when installed.
Or if it does backups, that could be restored.
System File Checker should have worked.
As well as Ztrucker's reply.
And the way Mr. Freeze is saying to fix your registry.
Although you cannot access the drive, these ways can.

Very good question....A malware expert should be able to help answer that.
My question at this stage is - which files should I restore? And how dangerous that could be if I restore these files, as they are infected?
I would not restore any antivirus backups.
Did you try the command to for System File Checker anyway?
It doesn't need a cd if you have a recovery partition.
In fact it will run with out any XP until it sees it needs a file and then prompt you for it.
