I have recently been a victim of malware and, although the problem has been resolved, I cannot delete the program "GMERS" (which I saved as "gamers.exe" to my desktop as to not be detected by the previous malware I had that disabled its ability to run). I recieve the message: "Cannot delete gamers: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use." My disk definitly isn't full, write protected, and to my knowledge from the taskmanager the program isn't running. Anyone with advice on how to delete this would be appreciated. Thanks.
