hello,
I have a machine that has some sort of virus. 
It locks up the second it boots.
I dont have time to do anything.
 
Can I do a boot time scan/ clean or anything?
 
Also, this is a duel boot machine. (XP & W7 which do see each other.)(32 bit)
I can boot into the windows 7 partition with no problem
 
maybee I could run secure anywhere from the windows 7 partition somehow?
 
Please help, this machine has some important stuff on it.

Hello bobbagels and Welcome to the Webroot Community Forums.
 
Yes you can scan from the Win 7 partition just Right Click on the XP partition and Scan with Webroot from the context menu!

Thank you for the quick answer, I will try it. 
I have found out it is called the
FBI Money Pack Virus
 
I will either try from windows 7(first)  or safe mode directly in xp (i just found out i can boot to safe mode also)

Yes you can but choose Safe Mode with Networking so WSA can have access to the Internet. 😉 If it does not remove it please Submit a Support Ticket to get further assistance as Webroot Guarantees removal free of charge.
