Sorry, that's just removal instructions, not a tool.  There is a complete guide to the removal process here:

I had the same problem. The worm is exploits a vulnerabily in 10.0 -- upgrading to 10.1.5.5000 cleaned things up.

Need to follow the manual removal directions on symantec site above as well. (Scan registry, scan files, allow Symantec to clean up).

Also -- TURN OFF SYSTEM RESTORE. (You can restart it if you wish once you are sure you're clean).

-- I personally have system restore turned off on all corporate machines.

jineshk,
This question has been hanging out here for over a month.
Have you had any success with the suggestions?

You might also want to try your removal process in 'Safe Mode'. Frequently malware can hide behind normal processes and avoid detection.
