Infected with virus

Drive guard is a stupid malacious software, Simply press ctrl+alt+del and end the process driveguard.exe. Now in the program files, delete folder named driveguard / flashguard or winflashguard or windriveguard. then run Msconfig and remove the stupid entry. You will save a lot of trouble if you can disable autorun function in your pc. After you are through, connect the phone, Show all files, delete the System folder and the autorun.inf file from your phone/ memory card's root directory.
Hope it helped.

its very rare for a motorola to be infected by a virus, usually on symbian phones are the common target. you just need to have a data cable conncted to your pc and copy the antivirus and paste directly to your phone. just go to my computer if your using windows and look for a removable drive. that would be your phone.
