PC-Cillin has advised me that my"winmfu.32.dll" file has a Troj_AGENT.flo virus. It couldnt quarantine nor delete the file. So i tried to delete it myself. That did not work as Access to the file was denied.

I decided then that the most appropriate step would be to reboot my system with the XP cd. That I am having problems with as follows:

(1) The CD drive is not allowing a reboot as I get the message - "STrike F1 to retry reboot or go to F2 for setup
(2) When I start the system normal and then try to run setup from the CD, my message is - "CAnt continue, version of XP on system is newer than the CD" This is because the system is running SErvice Pack 2 while the CD has SErvice Pack 1. I had it reinstalled a few weeks ago when it crashed and the guy did not use my cd.

What can I do to bypass this.

There are several ways to delete this file (but it won't necessarily fix all the problems or remove the entire infection).

1) Use a free program like KillBox or Eraser to delete the file on reboot.
2) Go into the security settings for the file, take ownership of it, then give yourself Full Control permissions. Then it should delete for you.
3) Try this free, online scan that has proven to be pretty reliable: http://safety.live.com/
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

After you run the Windows OneCare scan as usasma advised, run the following scans using Internet Explorer.
Allow the Active X download when prompted:

Trojan scans
Sygate Trojanscan

Windows Security Trojanscan
See instructions for it here:

Parasite scan from Aumha:
