This will not come as any great news to some; but, I have found how to remove viruses when the OS is so infected you cannot get Windows (NT, 2000, 2003, or XP running NTFS) to run well enough to run a virus scanner or even run Windows at all.

I have been using Bart's PE for quite some time to access NTFS for removing stubborn Adware/Spyware files manually when I knew the name and file path (location) of the files I wanted to delete. For some time now, Bart has furnished a way to incorporate additional programs into his little program; but, I never really tried to do any of that.

Tonight, I noticed he had added easy-step methods to incorporate AdAware and a version of McAfee Antivirus that is free to download. After some hour or two of fidgeting, I succeeded in getting McAfee incorporated into the Bart PE disk and successfully scanned for and removed 'umpteen' viruses from an NTFS disk.

Explaining exactly how I figured it out would take too much time and space so check out the link above. I will warn you, though, there is more involved than following simple on-screen click-throughs.
