Got a worm with Registry Mechanic

AFter I got that worm by running RM, I can no
longer get past the Windows setup box where it
requires the product code.

I've tried going into safe mode, and into safe mode
command prompt only, and trying the various options
such as restoring a pre-incident registry, using the
FIX option, etc, and it always comes back to that
stopping point.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Is there a way to go directly from safe mode startup
menu into the C drive, the Program Files folder where
the RM app is located so it could be uninstalled or deleted?

Appreciate any/all help!

Another thought - I'm building a new computer -
could I take the problem HD (which is partitioned into C and D)
and physically plug it into the other computer and, using the XP
on the new system, get into C\Program Files that way?
And without the new system "catching" the worm or whatever it is?
The problem system is 98SE, the new one will be XP.
That way I wouldn't be trying to start 98SE on that C drive,
but would use the XP on the other system to go into that C drive
and do away with that thing - would that work?
