How was the Xindi bioweapon stopped in 2004 in the "Twilight" timeline?

A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.

In S03E08 "Twilight" Archer became infected with the parasites which kept him away from his duties due to long term memory loss. I think it's safe to assume that the Xindi still went back in time to 2004 to build the bioweapon to destroy humanity like in the events of S03E11 "Carpenter Street". If Archer wasn't involved in stopping the Xindi bioweapon, how were they stopped?

The mission was given to Archer by Daniels, right? He probably chose another crewmember, maybe Reed or Trip, to stop the Xindi in 2004.

Classic paradox. I usually try to avoid the Temporal Cold War for reasons like that. I don't think the writers thought this really through...

According to episode "Carpenter Street" It sounds like when the timeline is changed in the past it takes time for those changes to affect the future.
