If you are running XP, why not use the System Restore Point Utility.
Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore (default)

Use this to restore to a point before you ran the .EXE.

Then try running A virus Scan.

If in doubt always create a Restore Point, before installing any software or drivers.

Have you tried booting from the windows CD instead of the hard drive ?

i always have a restore point,but when i tried to access it i cannot find.probably the virus hit this too...

I suspect that you have click here

Scroll down to "-- Update September 19th 13:00 PST --" and get the fixswen.inf file to repair the registry then run the removal tool.

dear tom
i try what you said,but i when i put my floopy into my drive windows cannot open this file.then i right click it and there is nowhere any choice to install.just to open it,copy etc.maybe i have to copy it to my hdd somewhere?
thx anyway

Who is tom?

If you are talking about the fixswen.inf file, you have to download it to C: (if C is the letter for your hard drive). Then find it in Windows Explorer and right click it.
