How to get rid of virus W32.FRANCETTE.WORM

I cannot find a patch or fix for this W32.FRANCETTE.WORM. My computer is slow now because of this, I've tried to format the hard drive, but still it exists. I do not know how to get rid of this virus.

I am running Windows XP. Both McAfee and Norton pick up the virus but neither of them can quarantine nor repair the file.

Please help!!!

Read through all the recommendations, including disabling system restore.
You also need to update your computer using http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com as it exploids two microsoft flaws:
