Aw, that sucks man. Try this<br><br>
The virus' almost definatly will have disabled your antivirus and other apps so try running the online virus scanner "Trendmicro Housecall"<br><br><b><a href="http://housecall.trendmicro.com/" target="_blank">http://housecall.trendmicro.com/</a></b><br><br>
This will help you find the virus name and hopefully get rid of it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Hope you get it fixed - I hate virus' <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Mad">

Its pretty obvious, but when you scan, make sure you do it in safe mode.<br><br>
Again, its pretty common knowledge, but it really helps if you dont. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

start menu > run > type in msconfig<br><br>
go to the start up tab and deselect "gnoll.exe"<br><br>
also try using find files and folders for gnoll.exe and delete it<br><br>
if these dont work in normal mode try doing it in safemode
