Recently my computer contracted some sort of malware, and about every 2 minutes I would get a message from windows defender saying that I had a trojan on my computer. I read somewhere that it was a rogue program so I tried everything to remove it. Add remove programs, using search then deleting it.

I eventually got everything deleted exept for a .exe file which will not be deleted, whenever I try it says (acess is denied make sure the program is not in use or your disk space isn't full.

I have tried everything, ad aware, spybot search and destroy, AVG anti virus, Threat Fire, Windows Install Cleanup.

Any advice?

I am using Windows XP Media Center Editon, if that helps any.

Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum and clarified Title~ TMacK

Edit:My bad, sorry about that.

It would help if you would state the file name and the name of the rogue program.
Here are links to two programs that have had success removing rogue programs.

Install Super Antispyware free. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
