Do you have Norton AV? If so, you can shutdown all unnecessary programs running on your pc, run NAV and let Norton quarantine the infected file. Replace the infected file with a new kernel32.dll.

If no AV, you can download a new copy of your kernel32.dll. Rename the infected file (to something to delete later), place the new .dll file in the proper folder, and delete the old, infected file.

I think I learned that here at Tech. There might be other ways to accomplish getting rid of it without formatting.

With Norton AV, go to the NAV cp and the quarantined files will be listed under reports.

For Norton SystemWorks, click Norton Anti Virus button, then click View Reports beside Quarantined Items icon. The list will show you all quarantined items.

IMO, you should still replace the .dll file.
