Back Orifice

I updated Spybot yesterday and it came up with BackOrificeB. It cannot remove it even after the suggested restart. It blocks a system restore and won't allow a safe-mode restart or alerations to startups after running msconfig. Any ideas on what this worm (I think) does and more importantly how to delete it would be welcome.

It's a glitch in spybot update it and run it again.

Thank you both for responding. As Sidecar Sid said, it was in fact a glitch which was fixed by updating again (for the second time in as many days!).
