The problems you describe are not possibly XMS driver created. Several virus' in the wild currently do this to your system, look at M$ knowledge base for details. If you have found the config.sys and autoexec.bat files open them with notepad and highlight the entire contents of the page and delete it, I promise it will not affect your system in the slightest(other than to cure a few potential problems, especially those with extended memory TSR's).
You can always rename them, calling them xxxxxx.old and then make two new notepad files with no contents, call one autoexec.bat and the other config.sys (remove the .txt extension)make sure they are both in the root of C: then you can try it with the confidence that you can undo any problems by returning to the originals.Not that you will need to!
