There are a lot of rescue CDs available out there, just do a google search. If you are good enough then any CD that will let you read / write files on your hard drive will work for you.
Hope you know where to find the virus.
Windows unfortunately has a lot of ways to allow a program to start, so check in the typical places like the start directlry off of your desktop, and possibly look at the registry for anything that starts up.
Another choice is to try booting into DOS with some older disk you may have laying around.
I think a few of the antivirus companies have bootable floppies that scan and remove viruses, or maybe a CD that boots. The open source virus checkers are getting really good.
