Susan:

Update your virus definitions and see if it detects it on a rescan. You can restore your system files by doing the following:
Click Start/Run. Type in SFC, hit enter. Run the file checker. It will detect and restore any files that have been altered. However, depending on what all that virus does, your computer will still be infected, and not sure what it could do. Go with the updated virus definitions... should detect that virus.

Good Luck.
