I had same virus and it does a lot of damage behind the scenes not just removing the start menu, fraid its a reinstall of windows but that is very hassle free as windows is already setup so you dont have to go through drivers installing and poduct activation

yes just boot of the cd *dont* choose repair anywhere, do a fresh installation just dont format the drive at the prompt, its usually a good idea to disable the passwords on you logon account and backup the documents and settings to a different folder on same hd before reinstalling because if something goes wrong during installation and they are passwod protected u wont be able to access them cos they ae encrypted. then just re password protect them when finished. you do this in the uses applet in control panel. and then you are home sweet home
