even if you can restore you still run the risk of retaining the virus.
put the OS disk in the drive and do a complete reinstall of the OS.  Delete the partition and all.

Norton Antivirus 2008 you can boot right from the CD and remove the virus right from the start.  Then you will be able to get back into your system and determine the damage at that point.  At least at that point you will be able to backup your data if you have to do a fresh clean install.

you can still boot from a Norton Antivirus CD.  It won't require a password to boot from the CD.  If you have the BIOS locked and can't even get to the boot prompt, then shut down the system.  Power it off.  Change the BIOS jumpers to remove the password.  Check the motherboard configuration from the internet.  Depending upon the make and model of the motherboard, identify the BIOS jumpers and change them to remove the password (10 seconds) then replace the jumpers and boot from the antivirus CD.
