e) click on "run" or command prompt
f) now you can run your cd by scaning your computer using command promt if you're interested with command language

how can you remove virus.win32.virut.n?
Gembe, as i'm yet to be a victim of this virus, my search on the net regarding the description and solution of the virus is as below:

(My ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: TREND MICRO website)

Gembe, as you might using a different anti virus program, i still hope that you will be able to follow the instructions given by trend micro and modify it them to suit your situation.

Malware Overview:

This file infector arrives on a system as a downloaded or dropped file of other malware. It may also arrive attached to spammed email messages.


It infects executed files that have .EXE and .SCR as file name extensions. It checks if the target files are in PE format before infecting it. It uses several types of infection techniques. Execution of the infected files perpetuates this virus' infection cycle. All infected files are also detected by Trend Micro as PE_VIRUT.L.


It avoids files with certain strings in their file names. It also ensures that only one instance of itself is running on the affected system's memory. These actions help prevent its immediate detection and consequent removal from an infected system.
This file infector listens to various ports and connects to an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) server where it joins a certain channel. Once connected, it allows a remote user to download and execute files on the affected system, effectively compromising the affected system's security as executed files may be malicious.

Description:

This file infector arrives as an attachment to email messages mass-mailed by another malware or a malicious user. It may be downloaded from remote sites by other malware.
It infects files of certain types. It does not infect files that contain certain strings in their file names.
It creates mutex(es) to ensure that only one instance of itself is running in memory.

Depending on your Virus Scanner, the following are its Aliases:

Virus.Win32.Virut.n (Kaspersky), W32/Virut.gen (McAfee), W32.Virut!gen (Symantec), W32/Virut.I (Avira), W32/Vetor-D (Sophos),


Solution:

Identifying the Malware Program
To remove this malware, first identify the malware program.
  1. Scan your computer with your Trend Micro antivirus product.
  2. NOTE the path and file name of all files detected as PE_VIRUT.XB.(and indeed any other alias; pls see further down highlighted in blue)
Trend Micro customers need to download the latest virus pattern file before scanning their computer. Other users can use Housecall, the Trend Micro online virus scanner.
Terminating the Malware Program
This procedure terminates the running malware process. You will need the name(s) of the file(s) detected earlier.
If the process you are looking for is not in the list displayed by Task Manager, proceed to the succeeding solution set.
  1. Open Windows Task Manager.
    &#8226; On Windows 98 and ME, press
    CTRL+ALT+DELETE
    &#8226; On Windows NT, 2000, XP, and Server 2003, press
    CTRL+SHIFT+ESC, then click the Processes tab.
  2. In the list of running programs*, locate the malware file(s) detected earlier.
  3. Select one of the detected files, then press either the End Task or the End Process button, depending on the version of Windows on your computer.
  4. Do the same for all detected malware files in the list of running processes.
  5. To check if the malware process has been terminated, close Task Manager, and then open it again.
  6. Close Task Manager.
*NOTE: On computers running Windows 98 and ME, Windows Task Manager may not show certain processes. You can use a third party process viewer such as Process Explorer to terminate the malware process.

On computers running all Windows platforms, if the process you are looking for is not in the list displayed by Task Manager or Process Explorer, continue with the next solution procedure, noting additional instructions. If the malware process is in the list displayed by either Task Manager or Process Explorer, but you are unable to terminate it, restart your computer in safe mode.


Important Windows ME/XP Cleaning Instructions
Users running Windows ME and XP must disable System Restore to allow full scanning of infected computers.


Users running other Windows versions can proceed with the succeeding solution set(s).


Running Trend Micro Antivirus

If you are currently running in safe mode, please restart your computer normally before performing the following solution.


Scan your computer with Trend Micro antivirus and clean files detected as PE_VIRUT.XB. To do this, Trend Micro customers must download the latest virus pattern file and scan their computer. Other Internet users can use HouseCall, the Trend Micro online virus scanner.
