XP sys restore to infected point and M$Defender problem?

    After MS Defender update, it cleared spyware(that Nod 32 left
    unnoticed) ,but then dsl modem stopped working and cannot be
    uninstalled(reinstalled again, because uninstall utility says it is
    already uninstalled although it is there).
    Restoring to some point before Defender update when modem was ok and
    comparing with the registry copy after the Defender intervention(with
    which tool?) would allow to remove manually the spyware key from reg
    and keep the modem, provided the sys restore also restored some system
    files that Defender possibly (accidentally) deleted.
    What chance is the spyware will not be working without its key and how
    about some other suggestions how to go about cleaning and enabling
    modem(please -no deleting modem installation keys from 'clean registry/
    if defender indeed cleaned it/' because it led to XP not booting at
    all)
    Perhaps uninstalling the modem from restored infected system(if
    spyware would allow it)and then running the Defender and then trying
    to reinstall dsl modem is a better idea?
