Hi,

Don't have experience with this virus myself, but there is a removal tool available for it;

I have had experience with this type of virus and SAV32CLI from Sopho. You can download SAV32CLI from :http://www.sophos.com/tools/sav32sfx.exe
On an uninfected Windows computer, run this file to extract the contents into a SAV32CLI folder on a medium that can be write-protected. Copy the SAV32CLI folder produced onto a medium that can be write-protected. Add any relevant IDEs to this folder and write-protect the disk (on a CD/R or CD/RW close the session).
Restart the computer in Safe Mode. Go to Start|Shut Down. Select 'Restart' from the dropdown list and click 'OK'. Windows will restart. Press F8 when you see the following text at the bottom of the screen "For troubleshooting and advanced startup options for Windows 2000, press F8". In the Windows 2000 Advanced Options Menu, select the third option 'Safe Mode with Command Prompt'.
At the infected computer, place the CD in the CD drive (D: in this example).

At the command prompt type
D:

to access the CD drive. Type:
CD SAV32CLI

Then type:
SAV32CLI -REMOVE -P=C:\LOGFILE.TXT

to remove the Worm.
Before leaving Safe Mode, edit any registry entries mentioned in the Worm analysis recovery instructions.

Also download SDFix from :http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/removaltools/sdfix.exe and run it in safe mode and post the logs of SAV32CLI and SDFix back here for analysis because you may be infected with more then just the virus you have mentioned above.I'm saying this because the experience Ive had with this virus does not disable the Task manager and command prompt

Thank

A lot of viruses/worms can disable utilities, the most well known for disabling msconfig, task manager, registry editor is Alcan/Alcra worm, but these days there are many other viruses that do the same thing.

Scan your system with Hijackthis so we'll have a better idea of what infection it is.
Can you run Hijackthis and show us the log please?

Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" please don't fix anything yet.
Please attach the logfile.
