Thanks for the warning but I have already used his suggested method which seems to have worked fine. Please let me know if there is some problem with it.

I don't know to be honest as it wasn't me who reported the post, but they said that the link was labelled as risky by browser security applications such as SiteAdvisor, WOT etc..

There wasn't a link posted, I would not have opened that. It was a step by step procedure to cure the fault and ancilliary problems associated with the virus. It was simple and worked well so, if cleared by your board administrator, would be well worth publishing. With respect, was much simpler than going via bleepingcomputer.com, which I found complicated and McAffee was removing some of the downloads suggested by bleedingcomputer.com.
