...and, with all due respect to the other posters, I doubt that any of the suggestions you've received are going to help much. Have a look at this post for an account of some of my travails:

At the least, you're probably going to need to slave your drive to a working machine to retrieve your files, which would then need to be scanned. Then, if you're lucky, you might delete the partition(s)using that same machine and then be able to put the drive back in the original machine and reinstall Windows.

On the other hand, you may find that various devices' firmware are infected as well, in which case, you'll likely be reinfected at the next reboot.

Nasty business.
