There are also some bootable cd solutions (check out BartPE -
http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/ ) which allow antivirus plugins...I have
used this multiple times - much more convenient than taking the hard
drive out every time I need to clean something...

Good luck!

Dear John,

Take the HD out of the infected computer, put the HD into another
Desktop and then clean the infected HD with 
Symantec. Don't make any netwerk connections!!!!!
If the virus is not removed, you have to fromat the HD. In the infected
computer take the battery of out this 
machine to claer the bios. Put the had cleaned HD back and the poblem is
solved.
