    Thanks for the replies.

    The problem seems to be gone. I don't know why it wouldn't let me delete it, but AVG found it instantly and got rid of it.

    Blue screen in Safe Mode problem still remains. I'll figure that out later.

    I have a boot CD that I was planning on using if all of the above failed. It comes with a bunch of system utilities, virus scanners, etc.

    Luckily, AVG caught it. :) Thank you

    Try repairing from the installation CD. The virus might have tried to throw you for a loop, since most people boot to safe mode for removal. If a simple repair doesn't do it, you can either restore or do more research into the particular virus you had to see what it deleted.

    SystemRescueCD has ntfs3g by default, but I don't think it has a virus scanner. I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to rebuild the ISO with clamav or bitdefender linux.
