Default Ripper Virus

Hi everyone! Im new to this forum.
Sorry for my grammar!
I had my hard drive corrupted about a month ago, and i bought a new hard drive. Its working fine and now, i just reformatted the corrupted hard drive. I have it connected to hold music, anime, etc. So yesturday, my computer suddenly restarts, and norton goback displays a error that says my boot up drive is corrupted. This was the message i got on my corrupted hard drive about a month ago. I removed my second hard drive and i somehow got back into windows. Now today, i connected my second hard drive in and i scanned it with "Trend Micro Internet PC-cillin Internet Security 2007," I get a virus alert that says Ripper Virus was found in C drive. Trend Micro didn't give me much detail on how to remove it. So any ideas on how to remove this? Any help appreciated!
