System: Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2
Antivirus: Trend Micro PC-cillin

Real-time Scan
Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security has detected a virus, spyware application, or other Internet threat, and performed the action specified.

Infected file: C:\WINDOWS\system32\pmnmklIA.dll
Virus name: Cryp_Tap-2
User name:
Scan action result: The Delete action was unsuccessful. Manually delete the file.
Note: If Search for and clean Trojans is enabled and is executed after scanning, you can click Next to view final scan result information.

Ran antivirus, but does not allow me to take any actions. Cannot delete, quarantine, or clean the file. I tryed the Trojan.Vundo fix program http://www.symantec.com/security_response/...-112111-3912-99 but did not solve the issue. It says the system is clean, but the file still remains and Trend Micro keeps poping up. I have tryed to maually delete the file but get an error message saying that the file is in use by a program and to close any program that might be using it and try again, I cannot locate any program using the file. Also tryed to restore to an earlier date but all restore points before last night (when the virus was first detected)were deleted, I am assuming by the virus.

What do I do?
