    I think I would got to an IT related site for a bit of help first or do some googling on the error message.

    The basics would be to boot from a safe source (CD, floppy , memory stick) and run a virus checker then.

    If in doubt go and see the local PC shop. Better than making a mess of what you have now and maybe losing data.

    Most viruses (viriii) can be removed safely and very few require a dosk format, although it is not unknown

    Can't you put the anti virus on a cd then boot up the laptop in safe mode and see if you can install it that way?

    Do you have any anti virus software running? I assume so otherwise you wouldn't have detected the virus... Which virus is it and what software do you have?

    restart the computer in safe mode run a virus scan then remove it, if you still cant do it check:
    http://www.symantec.com/business/security_response/removaltools.jsp

    look for the name of the virus download the tool and run it.

    Once you get a virus these days mate, depending on how advanced it is; installing anti-virus programs won't help.

    The best and "cleanest" method of removing virus issues is to simply format the machine.

    How to do that:

    If you purchased your computer from a retailer, they often provide you with a Restore Disc. This reverts your computer back to day one. Down side - EVERYTHING is wiped clean so you would need to back up any files before proceeding with restoration.

    If you do not have a Restore Disc, you will need an appropriate copy of a Windows Disc (XP, Vista...).

    If you require detailed instructions of how to do this, let me know and i'll provide you with them.
