UPDATE: That did not fix it. Why? The damn thing keeps coming back. It's a corrupt registry file at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/srcfile/shell/open/command/(default). I tried to manually delete it, but it will not let me, throwing an error saying, "Unable to delete all specified values."

I've got to much shit to reformat, yo.

If it comes down to reformatting, I'll probably just take a few bucks out of my stash and by Win7 and a 1TB internal. Then format my 750GB and slave it.

I have a post on BleepingComputer in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section. Waiting for a reply from an expert (they can only reply if they're experts ;) ) but that could be a while.

Well that's what I did. I just read the OT and figured he wants Vista. That's the only reason I mentioned it.

No, it just freezes. I have to power it off and back on for it to do anything.

No, I'd rather have Win7, but I'd REALLY rather be able to fix it so I don't lose anything.

Back up what you can, you said that after 5-10 minutes it unfreezes. So slowly but surely, backup everything important. Then reformat it. You may lose stuff, but it beats buying a brand new computer.
