How do I get rid of the W32.Blaster.Worm?

Question

My wife's computer has been infected with a virus called: W32.Blaster.Worm. We ran Norton antivirus and it detected the virus but was unable to quarantine or delete it. This virus apparently shuts down the computer within 60 seconds of signing on to the internet. How can the virus be eliminated from this computer? Also how did we contract it?

Thanks, Tom Slivka
