Wish I could help. It sounds like a new backdoor trojan virus. Norton has no info on it right now.

Ah, maybe this is why she hasn't replied to me?

Try this:

1) Update your virus definitions.

2) Boot into safe mode

3) Try to delete that file.

4) Do a full system scan in safe mode.

1) Update your virus definitions.


Open Norton AV.

Click "Live Update".

Follow the prompts to update the definitions (unless this is done at least once a week an AV program is pretty much useless).



I included instructions in the URL, but a short version is:

Reboot your computer, after BIOS loads start tapping F* and then select to boot into safe mode.

3) Try to delete that file.


Just find the file, and try to delete it.

4) Do a full system scan in safe mode.


Open Norton AV and run a scan of your computer.

Note you should tap F8, not F*. I typed too quickly.
