Shut down Windows, and then turn off the power. Do not simply press the reset button.

Wait thirty seconds to clear memory.

Insert an bootable CDROM or write protected floppy disk that also contains the FDISK program in the drive, and then restart the computer.

Run FDISK /MBR to rebuild the Master Boot Record on the Main Drive

If you have access to fprot, or NAVDX (Norton for DOS), use them to scan ALL files on the hard drive for the virus.

DO NOT RUN ANY PROGRAMS FROM THE HARD DRIVE
This should find and clean the virus from your machine
