comsetup.log--This log file contains installation information about Optional Component Manager and COM+ components. XP writes the comsetup.log file to the %systemroot% folder.

What symptoms were/are you having to make you think your system is infected?
Did you scan with your antivirus/malware scanners? Was anything found, and if so, what?

Which virus are we talking about?

Are you installing software stored on another partition on the same hard disk?

Immediately after you install Windows, you may want to install an antivirus and update it.
