I have been stuck with Trojan Horse Generic9.AQNO since 6:59 AM Friday Morning. I did not feel like allowing it to ruin my weekend so I did not bother with it until this morning. I am stuck. C:WINDOWS\System32\xstwbtzd.dll can not be deleted. Thanks in advance for any help.

Grisoft AVG free was the application that found this. Yes, It is XP. Also, Prevx CSI Scan also detected it. First it was trying to go to a storageprotector site and left two desktop shortcut icons - Windows Update and Help and Support Center. These icons periodically return. I can not get Prevx2 to install or uninstall. I get a reboot message.
C:WINDOWS\System32\xstwbtzd.dll lauches with winlogon.exe and explorer.exe
