Sorry for the lack of information on this virus, but I can't access my computer to find out more about it.

Last night, my computer switched itself off, I thought a plug was loose or something because I've never seen a cmputer do that before, it wasn't like a shut-down or restart, it just switched off as if the plug was pulled out.

The computer will not switch on without turning the power supply off for a few seconds then on again, and upon start it would load XP into Desktop, and upon seeing the Nod32 start-up splash would switch off, not sure if that has any relevance.

I rebooted into safe mode and ran Nod32 in-depth analysis, and it found a few instances of the same virus, I forget the name, it had Hack AV G in the name or something like that, I checked the option to delete and quarantine each time it was found.

Upod deleting around the 4th instance of the virus, the computer switched off and now will switch off the same way when it meets the select OS screen (when you have more than one copy of windows installed One of which is the start of another XP install but the comp switches off when trying to complete it).

The computer also switches off when booting from CD, so formatting is pretty much a pipe dream at the moment.
I don't have any floppy disks, and no way of writing to one without my computer operational.

I have a secondary HD that I do not want to install windows to, lots of important work on it and it could be infected aswell.

If anyone has any ideas on how to resolve this matter it would be greatly appreciated.
