Can't remove cmdw.dll ![RESOLVED]

Hi Guys,

A couple weeks ago an evil dll file called cmdw.dll downloaded itself onto my harddrive and placed itself in the directory C:\Windows\inf.

Norton Antivirus 2005 calls the file a virus, but can't remove because according to Windows the file is in use by an unknown program.

Norton Antivirus tells that the evil dll belongs to a category or viruses called

Trojan.Vundo.B, but even Symantecs own Trojan.Vundo.B removal tool is unable to delete the evil dll cmdw.dll

What can I do? I have been into safemode still the file in undeletable. I have the latest definitions for Norton Antivius and the latest Windows Updates.

Does there exist a tool which will allow me to discover which program is preventing me from deleting the evil dll cmdw.dll ????
