does this trojan really exist?

during the last few days every time I run webroot spysweeper it finds a trojan called downloader delf removes it and finds it again.Today I ran three scans each one directly after the other and it always found it.Although I believe spysweeper is the best Ive used yet could it be the scanners wrong or do I really have this trojan?

Thanks Vog but Ive tried a2 and all the other scanners they dont find anything and now Im not sure which scanner to trust.

Type into Google - downloader delf - and you will find it is a virus. Have you tried turning off system restore (you will loose all your restore points) booting into Safe Mode and removing it?

Well Spysweeper is a legitimate product click here

Does it tell you the name of the infected file and which folder it is in?

Thanks Old Shep no I havent tried that will try that now.To you Vog thanks for the link Its made me decide I have to believe the scan.

You don't have to believe it - even legit scanners come up with false positives.

The point is that it isn't a rogue program that claims to find loads of nasties then offers to fix them for $29.99 or whatever.
