Hello,
I have reformated my hard drive and installed windows xp only to find that its infected with ww32.virut.gen virus? please tell how to fix this.
 
Save your money. That virus is detected and removed easily using the Microsoft® Windows® Malicious Software Removal Tool (KB890830).

You can get this from Microsoft FREE by clicking
HERE.


If your browser is blocked from Microsoft sites, let me know.
 
I should add, while I can, that the virus also places itself in your System Restore points and will return. Get an Antivirus program capable of scanning your restore points to really get rid of it for good.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus will clean your restore points also, besides getting rid of it in the open system.
