Make yourself a UBCD4WIN (provided you have an XP installation CD). It contains tools with which you can scan your system for malware:

When you run the tool for creating the CD make sure you select the scanners you need from the list, and also update them.

Most of the big AV providers have images of bootable CD's to do this. Like Kapersky, this is Avira's version.

You should bear in mind that using boot av disks (like slaving hdd or scanning in safe mode) is not recommended with current virii.  

There is a great article which explains the main points of this debate here:

That's right, but if he can't boot into windows it may be the only option left.

Avira isn't worth downloading.
Best in the field would be:
1.Kaspersky
2.Symantec
3.and my personal favorite - Bitdefender.

If you are at the point where you must use a Boot CD, I suggest that you try Microsoft's product.

If you have preferred virus removal tools, you could try the following and load your own AV tools on it - Install Windows XP onto USB drive.

In your case, I would suggest disconnecting the Hard drives while installing in case it is also in the boot sector.

Agreed the other options are probably quicker.
