Static.australianbrewingcompany.com virus

My PC, which is running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 SP3 with Norton Internet Security loaded, has been recently infected by the static.australianbrewingcompany.com virus which opens unwanted adverts and displays erroneous warnings regarding full disks and offering solutions to clean them.  Reference to the item can be found on the web, but I am not sure that I can trust some of the proposed solutions to remove it.  Any reliable method to remove it, preferably with some simple instructions that an OldDuffer can cope with, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
