Trojan that won`t go.

I keep getting a message that Norton antivirus has detected a virus on my computer. It reads, Its object name is c:\Program files\spybot-search destroy\Blindman.exe. The virus name is Trojan Horse. Action taken, Unable to repair this file. Risk factor very low. I have run various anti spyware progs such as Super antispyware, AVG, Asquared, Advanced Windows care, Pest patrol,and none of them detect anything. I cannot get the message box off the screen either as clicking on the X has no effect. The computer is running perfectly normally otherwise. How do I go about getting rid of this please. All the anti spyware progs are uptodate, as is Norton. My OS is XP Home SP2.

This looks like a false positive detection as that is a legitimate program and it is in the correct folder click here

Many thanks THE RAVEN. Have had a look at that and it`s as clear as mud to me so I`ll wait for the next auto update to occur. Thanks again though.
