If you can get to the internet and can download and burn a cd, go to this website:

Download the image and burn it, boot your computer up, you can then scan and remove the viruses. Good luck!

Trend Micro (antivirus.com) has a free scan and fix they call "Housecall". It has a small client download, then you can scan and remove many issues.

If the virus has turned off vsapi.dll, then no scanner will work while you are booted to the operating system, and you will have to boot to a CD/DVD as mosinmike listed. Kaspersky also has a free rescue disk you can burn.

if you have a virus, chances are it has infected you browser as well which can further infect your system(depending on the virus). I would unplug the machine from my network and go to a friends house(or somewhere else) and download the rescue cd as mentioned above. I use the AVG rescue cd.

Its what all hackers use for the most part, including myself : )
it can test 24 diffrent types of antivirus software with your program and it can scan your computer for anything out the ordinary.

OH, you can try virustotal as well.

You can use Hiren's BootCD to clean your system.

Surprisingly enough, Windows Security Essentials has been receiving high marks.

Step 1. run this http://www.eset.com/online-scanner

Step 2. download this burn to cd and install http://www.avira.com/en/support-download-avira-antivir-rescue-system

if neither of those work for you, backup your files and rewrite your HDD to zero.

I would recommend doing the above in Safe Mode. As the computer is booting, start pressing the F8 key about once a second until you see a screen giving you boot options. Choose Safe Mode with Networking.
