    Windows 8 Consumer Preview x64

    Really think it's an unwise choice to not follow my advice
    That's fair, but with my system I'm running 5 hard drives with years of work files and too much to lose. I can't just format everything (and if this virus is as bad as you think it's in everything at this point). I stupidly haven't backed up in months, and I can't risk plugging the backup drive back in to add my more recent files. I wish I could easily just reformat and restore from a recent backup, but at this point I can't, and I have too much on this to lose.

    Unfortunately, problems can easily have the chance of migrating to all of your other computers too if any of them were worms. There's a large base of malware that looks to spread itself across lans.

    I never said I think what you had was bad. I said there is no way to know. It likely deleted Windows files or uninstalled service(s) - I would consider that bad with the potential to having done much worse that you don't even know of.

    looking at the differences between your exported registry files and default keys, I'm not sure it's worth trying to correct this in situ, there's just to many anomalies. I think, at this point, you have a couple of choices, you could follow the advice given by GMan, or you could attempt either:

    Refresh Windows 8
    Reset Windows 8

    The main difference between them is, a refresh will attempt to retain any personal data on the system volume, whereas a rest will not. Obviously, a reset is more thorough and in your situation, would probably be preferable.
