Windows XP Professional; HP-Compaq Computer.

Downloaded the Malicious Removal Tool from Microsoft website after my
computer started shutting down suddenly when it is scanned either by
anti-virus or Ad-Aware software. However, instead of removing the virus or
whatever, this tool too is shutting down the computer like Ad-Aware or
Anti-virus software. By shutting down, I mean, the computer is suddenly
switched-off (not normal shutting down) and my monitor goes to sleep. If I
try to start the computer within 30 minutes, it will close half way through
booting. This confirms, I think, that my computer harbors a virus.

Can someone tell me how to get rid of this virus please?

Thanks in advance.
