I ended up being infected by a trojan virus, even though I update Norton AV 2002 daily.It did not detect it and now I can't run update and am unable to go on the internet as the connection does not hold for any length of time(this is more obvious when trying to do something regarding antivirus).System OS is XP Pro.If i go back to a restore point will it wipe it out or will I have to reformat the hard drives(running with two). Anybody with any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

You haven't said which Trojan you have. There are many removal tools for the different trojans.
Try click here and look under "anti-virus tools", you may find a removal tool there.

you need to turn off restore points and run AVG this will clean your system and you'll be ok if you leave restore points enabled it will not be able to clear it when your system is clean turn restore points back on
