Persistent W32.Killaut.A virus

Specs: Windows XP, 2.0 GHz, 2 GB
Hello again,

Recently, my sis took back her pendrive from college and infected our desktop computer with a virus called W32.Killaut.A.

It is a persistent virus. I tried to follow the instructions on removing the virus on the internet.

It would quickly close norton internet security when i try to do a virus scan. It will also disable my ie7 and prevent me from accessing system32 folder or the control panel. Trying to start in safe mode would cause the computer to keep on restarting itself. I also cannot access the regedit. This and task manager appear to be "disabled by the administrator". We only have 1 account in the computer, which is the admin account.

I can just reformat the desktop, but the problem is, im trying to save my father's pendrive full of his work which he accidentally plugged in this morning after my sis. I noted that all folders in his pendrive have been converted to .exe files.

Is there a way to remove this virus from my dad's pendrive?
