Code Red only attacks servers running Windows NT or Windows 2000. While it is possible for someone to have one of these programs running on their home machine, it's unlikely that even they would be infested.
In the event you do contract it, shutting your machine off and restarting will clear the "Hacked by Chinese" message but will not clean the worm out of the machine. To get rid of it, go to Windows update and download the patch Bob mentioned.
