One of the best personal anti virus packages available is pccillin from trend. You can download a trial at
http://www.trend.com
With viruses so prevalent these days you should use something to detect and delete them

According to Trend's website, you can remove the virus with the following steps:

1. Click START | Find

2. Search and delete the file WININIT.INI.

3. If you found WININIT.INI it means that the Trojan is not yet done patching WSOCK32.DLL. Inthis case, search and delete the file WSOCK32.MTX. Otherwise, restore the original WSOCK32.DLL by extracting the file from the Windows installation file or by getting a copy of this file from another machine (make sure this machine is virus free). Take note of the major and minor version.

4. Reboot the system in MS-DOS mode.

5. Go to the Windows directory and run the following commands:
attrib mtx_.exe ?h
attrib Ie_pack.exe ?h
attrib Win32.dll -h
You need to do this to remove the hidden attribute of the dropped files.

6. Restart Windows.

7. Remove any reference to the Trojan file in the system registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\[MATRIX] (remove the whole key)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Run SytemBackup = ?%windir%\mtx_.exe?

8. Scan your system with Trend antivirus and delete all files detected as TROJ_MTX.A. To do this Trend customers must download the latest pattern file and scan their system. Other email users may use Trend HouseCall, a free online virus scanner.

You should also install a virus scanner as the previous poster indicated. Trend, Symantec (Norton), and McAfee all have good products. Whichever one you choose, make sure to keep it updated.
