What do you mean by "crashes the antivirus". Could you give us some more details? To remove the file you can try to download and run Unlocker. You can find a link in my signature.

what i mean by "crashes" is it causes the antivirus to exit instantly and shuts the program down. i just tried the unlocker doesnt do anything. i dont get any errors when trying to delete the file. i hit the delete button and it doesnt do anything. im going through the malware and trojin process now, im on the step of the panda online scan
