Hi All,

Can anyone advise how to get the dual boot to stop so that I can repair the XP setup with CD. If i boot to the cd it says reboot and run repair but I do not get to setup screen, Win 7 is on a removeable drive so can be taken out

Using the CD to repair the instllation willnot reove the virus.

I would suggest running SUPERAntiSpyware FREE Edition
and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

To try to get rid of them.

BTW, what anti-virus program were you running originally?
