Please go here:

Malware Removal Guide


You will need a PC which can connect to the internet

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This Log in a new topic in the Malware Forum

For the purpose of accurate malware analysis, Hijack This Logs are only dealt with in the Malware Forum. Posting them anywhere else will result in a delayed response

If you are unable to run any of the programmes, please ask for advice in the Malware Forum

Not necessarily, I took it you had checked with sophos

However,

Virus producers can use names which are the same or similar to a legitimate file as a way of preventing detection

Yes it will because they will determine if it is malware or not

It could be the file would not delete because it was in use, by windows or another programme

That would explain its reluctance to go

Run through the malware guide then you can be confident the PC is clear
