      Whatever program told you that the laptop is infected should be the best way to eradicate the virus.

      What are you trying to ‘install’ on this laptop?
      What model of PackardBell laptop is this?

      Does the laptop boot normally without a disc in the CD drive?
      *What operating system is currently installed on this laptop?

      If it is Windows XP you don’t Install the OS from Within a OS you need to insert the Install Disc into the Optical drive and boot off the Optical Drive to install XP.

      You may need to change the Boot Order in BIOS to Optical Drive First then the HDD to do this.

      Of course if you are attempting to Install XP onto Vista you need to first have a M$ Branded Install Disc and you need to download the right XP Drivers for your Hardware before you attempt anything else.
