OS: Windows XP Service pack 2
Symantec Antivirus is running

When running a virus scan, symantec pics up that there are virusses in e.g. c:\windows\temp\47E0D74B.qsp. Symantec reports it as W32.Spybot.worm. I have read in another topic on this website that it might be whataboutadog or doginhispen because the symptons are the same. How do I get rid of it? The files that are scanned does not exists. As soon as the antivirus program deletes it, another file appears out of nowhere and then the antivirus scans it, deletes it, and a nother file appears... and so it goes on. All the infected files that are reported have a .qsp extention.
