ip6fw.sys is infected with Win32:Trojan-gen

I was on a website (Using IE6) and I was trying to download a file - little did I know that there was a Trojan attached to it. I click to download the file, and Avast, my anti-virus scanner, actually blocked the IP address from doing anything dodgy, but regardless of that, a Trojan got through my system anyhow and Avast then came up with a message that said the win32 system file ip6fw.sys has been infected with "Win32:Trojan-gen {other}."

The file has been safely quarantined by my anti-virus program - and when I tried to delete the file, Avast Anti Virus froze - maybe something to do with the Trojan? So I haven't yet deleted the file - it's a system file from the WINDOWS/win32/drivers folder on my C:\ drive and I am thinking that deleting it will make my system unstable.

Can anyone help me remove it?

Thanks very much for all of your work! I appreciate you all for doing this.


P.S If you need the infected file, I can upload it to you for analysis.
