AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Help! I think my computer at home has been infected by a Virus!

Saturday night it started complaining about low disk space, i cleared up about 1.4GB and went out for dinner. When i got back it was complaining about low disk space (there was only 44KB left) and a window was displaying saying that some Windows files were replaced by unrecognisable files and wanted the XP Professional CD.

Do you know what Virus it is? I'm currently obtaining my XP CD, Office 2003 and latest Norton Antivirus so i can reload. Is that the right idea?

*sniff* my poor baby!

Security Advisor is still running on my computer. (I started it 2 1/2 hours ago) so far it's found a sillyDl file, Briss!Downloader, but it's also found a cargo ship load of Tribick files!!!
