You might try to run Spysweeper (free.... @webroot.com) or some such
adware remover and see if that does it .

or you could try to rename it and change the file extension to try to disarm it.

Failing that go back to a restore point a couple of days ago when you were
sure that you didn't have it.

Best of Luck. :)

Just tried Adaware....and it's not having it...as it keeps loading it self after I have completed a scan!.....renamed it (but did not give it a file extension) that didn't work either....This file is really making Zone Alarm work too!....anymore ideas Lancelot?

You could try several different removers as some are undoubtedly better
than others.

Or the restore point, remembering to backup all between then and now
that you want to keep.

Or the big format and reload as an absolute last resort.

Thanks for the guide Lancelot.....seems to have worked But before Restore worked I had to create a new folder in 'My Documents' then drag and drop this little sh*t of spam into it......then carried out restore once more.....The folder was still there!....But I was then able to trash it in the Recycle Bin!.....anyway thanks again....WR

Sorry I was unable to stay till you sorted it but ran out of time here.
If you ever have to restore again , windows will keep everything
that is in My Documents the same as it was. So you probably don't
want to put the nasties in there.

Glad it's sorted. :)
