jdighc,
I would look at the solution posted in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Applications/Viruses/Q_20777095.html
After you removed the process and the file, I would try to restore the file by using the repair function on the W2K system disk

jdighc: For future reference, it is bad form to post your e-mail addy when asking a question. If your problem is solved in a private e-mail conversation, then no one else can benefit from reading the solution.
