but after reading this
"this machine was so infected that it has taken 12 hours to get it to stay booted long enough to kill most everything that I could find."
it may just be time to nuke the drive and start fresh. You do have recovery disks, correct?
Usually bad infections also mean that rootkits may have been installed. And they are a real pain o rid of.

Make sure to backup your data and then check the backup on another system. Then nuke the drive (secure wipe) and rebuild from there.
