Thanks! I am using another computer now. I am trying F-Prot. I was able to delete the _RESTORE directory after booting from the floppy which was created in an XP computer, so it's a good step forward. Now I am running avast from safe mode after erasing some of the file from _RESTORE and will see what it gives...
I am usually rather fgood at cleaning computers but it's the first time it is beating me up that much! :) :-X

Not a chance! I changed the kernel32.dll file as it was showing to be corupted and it asked me to reinstall windows!  >:(
I did all what I could to orevent a fresh install but I think this is what I will have to do at the end! ::) Thanks for all the support! I will install avast as soon as it is new again!

For further reference, http://www.rescueme4win.org/index.htm has as lot of hints about rescue bootable CD and floppy disks with DOS, Linux, etc.
