The minidump folder seems to be empty. I am unsure if it is due to me being in safe mode or not.

Edit:My step-dad wants to go ahead and re-do the computer. He thinks it would be easier that way, as after doing some searching, it seems this particular intrusion was very much difficult to fix, and ended up wrecking some computers. I wish to thank you for your time.

Not a problem, being a 64bit XP was always going to restrict the tools that I could use

Still, thank you. I was actually worried that you might have not been able to do anything at all, being that it was 64-bit.

As a side note, when it gets redone, if it still has 64-bit, do you have any anti virus suggestions? Want to hopefully make sure this doesnt happen again.

My personal recommendation would be Avast as it is the one I use It is 64bit compliant and has a host of unexpected features for a free AV
There is a review here where all the major free AV's are tested/discussed, albeit on a hardware forum/blog
And the download is here along with a brief description of the features

Operating Systems Supported
Windows 7 (any Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
Windows Vista (any Edition excl. Starter Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher (any Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4 (incompatible with avast! Account)


If you need any help fine tuning it to your requirements then just shout
