I-Netsky virus

How do I get rid of this? I have Avg and McAfee virus scan but when I log into XpHome I get the warnings I have a virus but cannot get to quarintine it as the screen goes Blue and restarts. In safe mode AVG won't work and McAfee doesn't seem to detect it (waste of 60euro!!). It's sending porn emails to half the world and seriously stressing me out as I've only had my laptop for 6days.

All advice greatly appreciated

Have you tried switching system restore off before you scan.

I have just noticed that you say you have AVG and McAfee anti-virus. It is a bad idea having more than one AV - they end up chasing each others tails and slow everything down. You should decide which one to keep and uninstall the other.
