The file is located in the Windows folder on my main hard drive. I am not completely sure how I got it (Ill assume from a file downloaded off the internet or something of that nature) and I noticed it because my Windows Live One Care Firewall protection notice pops up everytime on startup asking if I would like to Allow or Block that files access to the internet...I, of course, have said no. I have not notcied any glaring effects, but after reading about what this thing is supposed to do, I want to get rid of it. So now I am searching for help on how to delete it.

Note: I am running Windows Vista RC2 Build 5744...I tried to do as many of the steps as I could on the list, some, such as the Panda Scan, did not work in Vista.

1) Ran a full scan with Windows Live One Care...found nothing.
2) Ran a full scan with Lavasoft Ad-Aware...found nothing related to this issue.
3) After searching online found that Sophos Anti-virus regognizes the file, downloaded a trial version of the program, and it did find the file. However, it cannot delete it becuase it says I do not have the permission to.

So, at this point I think I could go into safe mode and have it removed, but I also read that it may have already moved itself to other locations of files, so I am coming here looking for help. Thanks and I look forward to a response!
