Virus trouble... need assistance

I recently was infected with a computer virus. Norton AntiVirus 2003
initially caught the virus and it supposedly deleted it, so I was not
concerned with the message details. However, almost immediately after
receiving the message I realized the virus was not completely removed.
A DOS window popped up two or three times and then Norton shutdown. I
tried opening Norton again but it would not open. I then tried
uninstalling and reinstalling but it would not reinstall. I tried the
Windows Update site and the page shows no conent. Any ideas on how to
identify the virus so I can take steps to remove it?

I'm running Windows XP Pro with SP1.

Thanks

Try Trend Micro's Sysclean package (free), it's capable of eliminating
keyloggers, trojans etc. Full instructions at:
