My problem is I have 2 infections the first is reported as Mal/packer malware, the second as Mal/keyGen-Q and the version of Sophos that I downloaded can identify them but not remove them. Is there a way to remonve them that does not require a full rebuild of my HDD?
Your knowledge here would be a great help.

Those are all detecting Windows software, and in the case of Mal/Keygen-Q, it's detecting a serial number generator for a piece of proprietary Windows software. Check the paths in the Quarantine Manager; you can probably remove the files from quarantine and then toss them in the trash via the Finder, Windows interface if you're dual-booting or using a VM, or from within Time Machine if they're in a backup.
