    For Windows 9x & ME you need good ol' MSKB article 255867;
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;255867

    For Windows XP, use MSKB article 313348;
    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;en-us;Q313348

    Print the appropriate article, and you will have every detail of the process available to refer to.

    As to what to do when you are up and running again?
    Sygate has a top-notch free firewall for your first line of defense;

    AVG is a great anti-virus program - http://www.grisoft.com/

    And for the little nasties that can occur from time to time, Spybot Search & Destroy can help a good deal those;

    And most importantly, keep up with the latest virus news to keep aware of what is going on and what measures to take.

    Good luck
