Not nesessary. Tell us the virus name and we might be able to help you. You can also try turning off System restore to delete it.

Not necessarily, is the F: drive a backup HDD or just a partition on your main HDD? Did you bring it from your old system?

This is to do with system restore, disable system restore on drive F: and reboot, check again but that should clear it. Enable system restore on drive F: if clear and reboot.

It would be nice if you could let us know what the virus was.

edit. darn too slow typing.

Well, I'm a little surprised by a .com file on WinXP (is it WinXP, right?) ... that doesn't seem very usual to me.
