There are many sites that will scan your computer for viruses, but I don't know any that will clean the virus for you, but I'm sure there will be some.

Download a virus checker and install it. A good free one is AVG Antivirus, available from www.grisoft.com

For information on the Magistr virus, look here. Has removal instructions too.
