    Unable to remove FBI virus in Windows XP

    am trying to remove the FBI virus through system restore. The system is hung up with the message "Please wait while your windows files and settings are being restored. System restore is initializing." I have tried to start in safe mode by pressing F12 and from a recovery disc by pressing F8 on restart but the computer keeps taking me back to that same screen. It just sits there and a little symbol spins. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    The proximity of error in your system is such that you will be prudent enough if you decide to install the operating system freshly.

    I am talking about a format then installation of the operating system, to remove any traces of the virus if any in the system.

    Use an original copy of the OS and use custom setting to install afresh.

    Thank you.
