I ended up with the Vundo trojan, and Norton didn't fix it. Downloaded and ran XoftSpySE, and it detected and (supposedly) deleted it, but the .dll is still on my computer. I'm in safe mode, trying to manually delete winrzf32.dll from my system32 file, but my pc keeps telling me that it's write-protected. I'm running Windows XP Media Center. Can someone please help?

Winrzf32.dll is related to a dialer so you apparently had multiple infections. AVG AS should take care of it.
If your running Win 2000/XP/Vista (32-Bit/64-Bit), download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 in "Safe Mode". (This is Ewdio 4.0 renamed and updated with a special "clean driver" for removing persistent malware.) Be sure to print out and follow the AVG Anti-Spyware Install-Scan Instructions. (Important!Vista Users should download, save directly to the Desktop and install from that same location to avoid problems from UAC)

AVG didn't work, at all. It pulled a few things off, but the root of the problem, winrzf32.dll is still there. Right now I'm working on the other suggestion. I'm starting to get really frustrated with this... :-P
