my pc is infected by IM-Worm.Win32.Sohanad.t, though my zonealarm internet security suite is running and real time scanning is enabled for both virus and spyware. it comes from my pen drive. each time i scan my pc with the antivirus, it detects the virus is loaded into ram and sets a flag "delete on reboot." but actually the file is not deleted even though i reboot my system. after infection the virus disabled task manager, msconfig and regedit.

how can i get ride of this virus? please help.

this should take care of the autorun problem

have you restored task manager, run, folder options & command prompt, that worm should also disable those
