My network of Win XP,  windows serverd are rampant with the marioforever virus. I have been told that I would have to rebuild all the PC and the Servers to get rid of the virus. Can anyone help me or suggest a solution  of cleaning the virus without having to rebuild the servers and the pc's.
Thank you.

you can go to here
and get the rescue iso and build a rescue disk.  I think the marioforever virus definitions came out a while ago and that should take care of it.

Hmm... this is the infamous virus which loves printers.... download malwarebytes anti-malware and do a scan, don't forget to update it though.

Online Trend Micro scan should also remove it from PC.

Hope it helps

And run the: "FULL SERVICE SCAN" it will cleanup & speedup your computer, if it won't run then:
You may have been infected with Worm:Win32/Conficker.B
To protect from Conficker apply an emergency patch that Microsoft issued in October - ahead of Conficker's arrival - for a recently discovered flaw in the Windows operating system that Conficker was designed to exploit.
The patch was originally intended to protect Microsoft's customers against a different piece of malicious code, a data-stealing worm called Gimmev.
Conficker could still activate itself, and it's not the most dangerous piece of malicious code out there
Ways to detect and clean a system that has the Win32/Conficker.B worm
If on a network, I recommend disabling "Password Lockout" policy for the time being, till you are sure the infection has been contained and cleaned in your network.
