I'm new here, and I wanted to ask this:

I downloaded an antivirus program (avast!), and it found this, but can't fix it. Win32:Netsky-P [Wrm] What is this and what do I do about it?

Thank you

Please give the full path and filename that was reported by Avast.

Then we can probably help

Before you fix any viruses you need to turn off your system restore. It looks as if your virus is in a restore point at the moment. Once you remove this virus then switch back on your system restore.

Assuming you're running Win XP,

Do Start->Control Panel->System, System restore. Tick "Turn off System Restore" and reboot. That will erase all restore points.
After reboot, be sure to go back in and turn System Restore back on.
