Possible W32.leave.worm?

My PC running winXP came up with a "setup50.exe Bad Image" error when booting up. I have Symantec Corporate Edition Av with live updates from our network. I could not open any programs.
I ran a virus scan with no viruses found. I then ran Spybot, Adaware and CWShredder and I could now open Word, Access and Excel, but no AS400 or Outlook. Outlook came up with the "Outlook has experienced a problem and will close" error, while the As400 just flashed a small window and disappeared. Tryong to access any free online scanners (Housecall, Symantec, Panda etc..) didn't work. The dropdown lists also won't work on any web page I am on.
My research came up with  the W32.leave worm , but after walking through the steps from the MS Knowledge base it does not contain the "reg sv" that it says to delete in the registry.
I am at my wits end, anyone out there who can help?

Hey LoC,
I hadn't done that but just I jusst finished and everything is still the same. no AS400, no Outlook and the AV websites won't access for me. Like I said earlier I don't think it is the Leave worm but I am still in a quandry. Anyone else?
