Please don't be offended by this over-simplified answer, but . . .

Run your antivirus software.  If you can't get into windows, reboot with a rescue disk inside the A: drive  (you probably made one when initially installing your software).

Thanks GUGUS, ANd no i'm not offended by it at all,
It's just the Virus itself Was very difficult to handle. It's not no ordinary virus, Mcafee hasnt even come out with a fix for it yet, I went Searching all over the net for a cure, Finally found something for it in Beta Stage, But it's all fixed up now so i'm happy, The virus by the way Pretty much tore up all the .exe files Which wasnt that great, And Since Mcafee had no fix for this virus the only way to get rid of it was to pretty much Gid rid of it(delete it), So thanks anyway, I've solved the problem myself

You can get an evaluation version of AVP from www.avp.com
This will kill your virus.

McAfee does have a fix for it, but they refer to it as W95.CIH...

OR

Go immediately to http://www.drsolomon.com/ and download the eval copy of findvirus...

If you attempt to use an antivirus software that does not recognize the CIH virus, your AV app can actually act as the agent that spreads the virus to all your exe files!!!!

Also, to be on the safe side, I'd recommend leaving your computer OFF ALL DAY on Sept. 26.

Would be interesting to find out how these urban legends get started. Per the virus alerts, the virus started in Taiwan... Additionally, DocSol, McAfee and Norton are all prepared to deal with this (and I'd imagine F-Prot is also).
