Take a look at this MS KB article, it may help:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q224/4/36.asp

You can also get this article by sending an E-mail with a subject of "Q224436" (without the quotes) to mshelp@microsoft.com.

This link should automate that for you:

I would download something like McAfee:

http://download.mcafee.com/eval/evaluate.asp

for a trial period.  It has the ability to scan your email files and clean them.

Unfortunately, McAfee can't find Melissa in *.pst files.

Well, I disagree with the last comment. I've installed Mcafee (Netshield) on several servers, also with PST-files on them. And some of them were indeed infected with Melissa and Netshield cleaned them. Are you using a Win95 or WinNT station. For WinNT you need Netshield, which can be evaluated at www.nai.com.

You could also have a look at Antiviral Toolkit Pro. www.avp.com Really good Antivirus program.
