I uninstalled XP2 because it was crashing some video files. Subsequently, i got hit with a downloader that seems to have installed a multitude of malware.

I have run AdAware, Spybot, CWShredder, TDS-3. Each found a mutitude of items and they have been removed. (some still remain however).

have been unable to install XP2 or use an online virus scanner because of symptom (5) below.

My symantec antivirus software seems to have been disabled. It takes over one hour to scan around 1 GB of data now.

symptoms:
1. windows explorer is running extremely slow. takes about 5 mins to gain access to my hard drive.
2. boot up is very slow (also about 5 mins to boot up)
3. all programs seem to be running slower than usual
4. All microsoft office programs seem to crash within the first 5 mins.
5. opening internet explorer seems to begin an immediate download of data (stopped it through task manager each time so not sure what it is downloading...didnt want to find out)

Please help!

Thank you for the suggestions!

Unfortunately, it didnt fix it. I still have the exact same problems.

One interesting note is after finishing the list of fixes you suggested, i tried running internet explorer once again. I got the same thing (seems to be downloading immediately upon opening - had to ctrl-alt-del to quit) except this time, my LAN connection was disconnected. So i guess the "downloading" i mentioned before is either false or it is coming from a source within my own computer.

I also had to fix through Hijackthis twice in order to remove a few of the items you listed. I was unable to remove the below lines despite trying to fix them twice.

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

Thanks for the suggestions once again.

I did everything as you instructed except for one step : Running TrendMicro Housecall. The reason is (1) i am unable to use internet explorer for fear it will immediately begin installing malware once i open it, and (2) when i tried to run it through netscape navigator, i was unable to get past the point where it asks for the file containing plugins. Even though i specified where the navigator plugins are located, i still go this error message.

Instead of running housecall, i downloaded the trial version of PC-cillin and ran it.
It found about 6 trojans - quarantined them
it was unable to clean 2 trojans it found : IESER.A and AGENT-3.

My computer is still running the same way as before : slow explorer and slow start up.
