How experienced are you with the inside of that computer? ( If I ask you about IDE's and Molex connections do you know what I'm speaking of? )
What kind of PC do you have? describe what you can, anything would be helpful ( DELL - HP that sorta thing )
Is this the only PC you have?
if you have another PC that isn't infected, do you have a digital camera that you can hook up to it?
I'll try to wait for your response, if I do not get back to you today, I will be on here tomorrow morning

It's an HP notebook, but I'm not sure what vintage. The OS is the 2002 version of XP Pro. It has a 1.86 GHz processor and 520 MB of RAM. It has a wireless card, but the card doesn't work well with our wireless network, so it's connected to the router by ethernet. I'm actually pretty impressed that it still runs as well as it does.
I'm not worried about voiding the warranty (because it's probably long expired), but I'd rather not risk rendering the computer non-functional.
This is the only PC I have access to right now, but I'm fairly sure I can find another computer to use if I need one. I do have a digital camera.
I managed to get rkill to work when I rebooted a little earlier, and I then got to update and run VIPRE. It found three trojans, one of which I'm pretty sure is the one that is causing the problem. We'll see after I reboot, though.
