    The first thing to do is get a second opinion. False positives are rare
    but do happen. Try one of the online scanners.

    Next is to visit you AV vendor's web site for removal instrunctions.
    http://www.sarc.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html

    If it is a backdoor, it will be listening. You should be able to detect
    that. I don't really trust AV scans made from a suspected machine. Can
    you move the drive to a known clean machine for scanning?

    Not much to go by but seems old hat. SubSeven?
    Anyway, try:
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
    If not try a free trial trojan hunter.
    Then secure your sys.
    As always, Google is your friend.

    Where does NAV say the virus is?
    If you have Windows ME or XP and its in the restore folder NAV wont be able
    to remove it so you need to disable system restore and reboot to purge the
    restore folder.
