Badly infected W2k PC w/ virus or worm

I just signed-up and if this is solved it's worth the first six month's atleast-- I'm stumped.  
This Windows 2000 PC is obviously infected with something, but what.  The latest Norton 2004 Pro identifies w32.randex.gen in svchost which it cannot repair.  When I copy the svchost file to floppy and scan it from a clean PC no virus is detected.  I downloaded the HiJackThis and here's the log file:

Well, that helped some.  NAV now does a scan, finds and removes randex.gen by successfully deleting dc93.exe.  THat's progress.  However, a subsequent scan with Spybot S&D reports "DSO Exploit" and says it's "fixing it."  I scan again and it's still there.
