odbc.hta what is this

I have a friends computer that is causing problems When I log on, , a tiny blue bar,
exactly like the top of any browser pops up over the Start button. It is no more than 2 inches long and says,
C:\Windows\ODBC.hta and then i get a warning from Norton Antivirus malicious script detected Activity get special folder. So I stop the script.

I think this is something to do with Kaaza which I have deleted from his computer, but still remains in Msconfig/Start up
(Register Kaaza upgrade suite 3)If I uncheck this it reappears, and I cannot comeletely remove kazza from his computer.

I did a quick google search not much there, but I get the feeling it is a trojan.

I just click on the download button and downloaded a zip file of 41.8K. I'm not sure why you're getting the run-around, if you still get problems, email me and I'll send you the zip file.

Further thoughtd; you have a problem with some sort of scumware on your machine, if you still can't get through using cycoze's link, that will confirm you are being re-directed. The scumware will have to be removed using one of these programs:

Just getting the search page: after states waiting for download, if not redirected in so many seconds click here:

I have spybot S&D run that found nothing, and Pest Patrol, run that found nothing.

I have Norton AV, and Zone Alarm Pro so would not expect to find any problems. As you can see I am Heavily gaurded against so should not have these problems, clicking on a link.
