Hello everyone!

A few days ago i noticed that some popups where on, every time i was running ie or other web browser.

I started searching why was that happenning and i found out that i'm infected with a trojan named 'Rootkit.Agent'.

I use Spyware Doctor as anti-spyware software.
Spyware Doctor reports that the file causing the problems is the 'core.cache.dsk' and is located in 'c:\windows\system32\drivers'.

I tried to remove the file but it didn't worked because seems some proccess use it!
I tried to locate which proccess is that but cound't find out.
Furthermore, i logged in under safe mode in order to see if i could delete it that way but the file wasn't there! But every time i logg in under normal mode the file is there and the pop up windows continues!

Please, can anyone help me on that?

Thanks in advance and i hope for a reply at your earliest possible convienience!
