Disabled registry from new trojan

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I recently had my computer infected with four trojans due to them
being new and undetected by the majority of anti-virus programs. So I
submitted them to AVG who confirmed they were trojans and updated
their virus definitions. This removed the four trojans from my
computer. However, I still have problems that need to be fixed. One of
which is a disabled registry.

Here's what needs fixing (from my HijackThis log):

F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=explorer.exe "C:\Program Files\Common Files
\System\svchost.exe"

O2 - BHO: (no name) - - C:
\Program Files\Common Files\System\wship_help.acm (file missing)

O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System,
DisableRegedit=1

O7 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System,
DisableRegedit=1


Some people have suggested using SDFfix. Is there any reason why I
can't just use HijackThis to fix them? SDFix seems more complicated
and unnecessary. Or does what I use to fix those problems depend on my
computer and whether it's up-to-date and backed up, etc.?

I just want to use the safest, most reliable method to fix this
problem.
