Well that sounds like a tough one.. Have you tried safe mode. Rapidly press F8 after the the bios screen load and before the winxp(assuming your running winxp) screen starts. Safe mode only loads the bare essential process for the operating system. You should be able to run a virus scan from safe mode to at least get rid of the worst of it. IF this doesnt work you might have to either use a bootable virus scan or look at reinstalling the operating system. If the virus has embedded itself far enough into crucial system files then you will for sure need to do this or attempt a repair install of windows. One thing iv learned over the years trying to clean viruses off systems is that you can spend HOURS and hours fighting it where some keep coming back.. or you can invest a couple hours into trying to get rid of it and then call it quits and reformat which is the only sure way of completely getting rid of it. I hope this helps. im a big fan of AVG available at grisoft.com . they even have a free version (free.grisoft.com) good luck.
