Glad you got it all sorted out dolphinius; two weeks wow that is annoying!
I was in a similar situation, but I am glad I had made a Norton Ghost image of my PC earlier this year.
My PC was infected with some spware and with threats that carried out malicious code that affected a number of things on my PC.
Thanks to Ghost, after trying to fix it manually during part of the previous day, I had it all restored in a matter of minutes + anohter 10 - 15 minutes to reinstall some apps that had been installed after the Ghost image was created...
