Have you tried booting in `Safe Mode` and then running your anti-virus and/or deleting the item?

A further option would be to identify the name of the virus and Google it; you should then be able to get advice as to its removal.

ok i tried the unlocker, it removed the first one but when i rebooted there was another one with a different name, i re-ran the unlocker and managed to delete this one with a reboot, hopefully there won't be any more....ty
