Just some info on antivirus stuff.

Short version:
To DISINFECT your system:
You will need a CLEAN boot disk (Boot CD even better)
and a current version of a DOS scanner.
Follow the instructions for it to do a detailed scan and clean of your system.

I was lucky with my recent infection. I got hit with the Yaha virus. Luckily, it wasn't terribly destructive. Even more lucky, Symantec had a virus removal kit for it. After a quick download (well, not that quick, since the virus was causing my system to run like a pig...but a small file), I ran the file and the virus was off my system.
