Removing virus from command prompt

  1. Windows XP boots to desktop but locks up when clicking START button and i cannot
    run explorer to access file system. Suspect a virus/malware/spyware infected. I can boot
    to command prompt however. Able to recover most of my files to external drive.

    Can I run an virus cleaning program while at the command prompt ? What program
    should I use/buy?


    OS is XP
    HW is Lenovo Thinkpad T61p
