Default Can't delete .exe file??

sponsored links

 
Ive got a .exe in my local settings temp folder that tries to access the internet each time I start windows xp. My firewall (Norton) tells me to block it which I have been doing but each time I restart it changes its name and tries again. I am unable to delete it, access denied, and norton av, adaware and windows washer don't detect it.
Has anyone any ideas?

tia,

nal

www.moosoft.com and download the latest version of The Cleaner, sound like a trojan horse or worm.

The .exe changes its name every time you reboot, thanks to lazza in another post downloaded spybot which has killed it .... media player9 came up quite a few times plus another entry, strange behaviour if it was microsofts.
