I am using a Knoppix disk in a Windows XP computer that is infected with the W32.Blaster Worm. I have the binary exe on a flash drive but I do not know how to run the binary file so it will work on the hard drive. I'm a total beginner to Knoppix/Linux so any help is greatly appreciated.

Have a look at "Scan a Windows drive for viruses using Linux" - http://www.ghacks.net/2010/03/09/scan-a-windows-drive-for-viruses-using-linux/. It involved physically removing the Windows Disk.

Look also at "Killing Virii with Gentoo and Kaspersky" - http://foss-boss.blogspot.com/2009/05/killing-virii-with-gentoo-and-kaspersky.html . There you leave the Windows disk in place and scan with a Linux LiveCD. The link takes to kav rescue 2008, but a look arounf the site will produce this years kav rescue 10 at http://devbuilds.kaspersky-labs.com/devbuilds/RescueDisk10/

I have used the latter. You need enough memory for it or it will not run.

Windows has a worm/trojan - not sure which one really that copies the windows security center and gives a lot of false infection messages so you will active the tool for a mere $40.00 (and who knows what else they would get).. Anyway thanks for the suggestions, I found a windows user who had encountered the same problem and went thru the windows cleaning route.
