So my buddy got the Worm.Win32.NetSky virus on his computer and I told him that I could fix it ( done it about 10ish times already). Well the problem that I am getting is that explorer.exe is locking up the computer when its trying to run. So I tried to boot into safe mode and then i get BSOD when the drivers are trying to be loaded. So I tried to repair windows but the computer is unable to read the Win XP CD and USB. So now I am at a in pass on what to do and any help would be very appreciated.


After reading this thread it seems like this is the unfix able virus.... So I am gonna start bootin up in ubuntu and try to fix it from there.
