    Can you see 'a' (floppy) drive in explorer and device manager?

    Check cables haven't come loose.

    Best way to clear out any virus is to visit Housecall for online scan: http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

    BTW if you use a floppy to get rid of suspect virus make sure it's write protected otherwise you'll get reinfected.
