Viruses found on computer?

  Pererin 17:23 08 Jul 2008

Hi Guys, these are the names of the viruses I have found on my USB - Trojan.Downloader.Vb.AMO, Trojan,Mailspam.J, MAL_OTORUN and WORM_VB.CVY. I cannot find any info on them and along with the letter combo I posted earlier I am not sure if they are serious or not. Have dealt with all of them but on one computer it gave the location as C:\WINDOWS\system32\odbcasvc.exe I tried to remove it manually as the virus checker I used could not delete it properly but to no avail. Not sure how to do it any other way, any help would be greatly appreciated.
