Hi I already posted this in the XP forums but I really need help for this bit of malware

I'm stuck with the New Folder.exe virus and I tried following the steps here and ended up screwing up some key system files(step 3 to be precise) and now I cannot open any commands except with the Run As option( I am running windows xp professional) and applications are hopeless.

What I have tried so far:

Malwarebytes in safe mode and normal mode

The exe registry fix in normal and safe mode.

I am a Linux user so please be detailed in your responses as I am not really windows savvy. I REALLY want to avoid a windows format so please help.

I have used this before. create a file called exefix.reg with the following in it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00



[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe\shell\open\command]

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\secfile\shell\open\command]

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command]



[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe]

@="exefile"

"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"



[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile]

Then right click on it and select install.
