During a recent defrag I noticed 6 or so files which couldn't be defraged. I did a simple internet check and discovered them to be spyware. I located them all in a folder titled Lavmsung in My Program Files. Trying to delete this entire folder generates the error message that they are in use by another program and can't be deleted. I tried turning off my system restore to then run Ad-Aware or Spyware Doctor for removal or to defrag but for some reason I am unable to access my system restore settings at present. Ad-Aware and Spyware Doctor are not recognizing these files as spyware as they never come up on a scan but Apropos Media (spyware) comes up every time and I direct Spyware Doctor to remove it. The files contained in the Lavmsung folder are ace.dll; atl.dll; mcatdisp.exe; and WinGenerics.dll along with log files and a Cache folder. Can you advise me on the easiest and best way to eliminate this entire folder from my computer? Clear detailed directions will be needed as I am no Geek and have limited skills with this.
