This might be a problem. So you can't get into Windows at all (normal or safe mode) without any problems?
I don't know of any antispyware tools that will run from the dos prompt.
Did you try fixing this yourself? If so, what did you do? We'll try to reverse the steps if possible.
If you have another computer, I suggest taking out the hard drive for this computer and put it on the other computer. Mount the hard drive to be the slave drive and boot up the computer. You should see a new drive letter in My Computer. That's your old hard drive. Just copy the pictures over in case something goes wrong.

Go to another computer and download smitRem.zip and unzip it to a new folder. Save the whole folder to a floppy or cd. Go back to your computer and in the command prompt, try running the RunThis.bat file. It should create a log file called smitfiles.txt in your c: drive. Give me that log.
Hopefully that will allow you to run the .bat file. If not, post back and we'll try something else.

Just make sure you install it as an upgrade so that it doesn't erase your current data. Insert your CD and follow the instructions on the screen. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or in the Windows 98 forum.

If not, I suggest reinstalling Windows by installing it over itself so the data will be preserved. This should fix up the problem (at least temporarily). Just insert the Windows 98 CD and install it over the current installation as an upgrade.

is it worth fixing from here or do you think I need to burn what I want to keep and start fresh

My suggestion now is to backup your files since you can get into Windows.
Then if you want to clean out the junk (and hold off on the fresh install), do this:
