Avast anti-virus

I am running Avast anti-virus home edition and it tells me that I have a Malware named Win32:SysPatch(wrm)
Type virus/worm.
If I click on Move to chest or Delete it states read only file Cannot process.
If I click on ignore the warning window goes away but sometimes comes back.

How can I get rid of this worm?

This might be quite a difficult one to remove. Check out these responses from the Avast forum:

Many thanks Sea Urchin
It worked. Marvelous.

Glad to hear it worked OK - as provider 2 said it can be a tricky one to remove.

Happy malware free year :@)
