Please tell me how to get rid of this computer virus!

I just found out that my computer has the virus 'W32/Klez-G'. My computer has been sending out random e-mails to people, I guess trying to spread the virus. Can anyone tell me how to get if off my computer? I need to get rid of it as soon as possible to avoid infecting files!

Go out and buy Norton Anti-Virus. Install it then update the definition files. Then run a manual scan.

You can download a fix for this at Symantic's website and it's free.

These days it's a must to always run anti-virus software and to update it all the time. Where I work we run AV on the email servers to scan incoming emails, on the file servers and the clients.
