I can't delete VBS.Redlof.A virus using Norton Antivirus. Please help me with this. I haven't experienced the effects of it yet and I don't know what it does.

virus VBS.Redlof.A

index2[1].htm and index3[1].htm were quarantined.

Three other files cannot be quarantined and cannot be deleted. The other three files were: Unknown00000000.data
Unknown00000000.data
Unknown00000000.data

Should I still worry with the other three?

The quarantined files were located in Temporary Internet Files. I deleted the Temp Internet Files using Disc Clean-up. After I deleted it, I ran a virus scan and so far the 5 infected files don't show up. This includes the other three infected files that cannot be quarantined and cannot be deleted. The scan is not yet done. During the previous scan, the infected files appeared early.

I now recommed using a free online virus scanner. I never have done this until a recent problem with a generic backdoor.trojan.

it was recommended to go to houscall.antivirus.com, from trend micro. I coulnd't get there so i went to bitdefender.com.

It found 40 trojans and dialers on my machine that norton completely missed.

...i may unistall norton and use the online ones from now on lol.

Yup, as Nosgoth suggested use Housecall when you are done to see if anything is found. If nothing is found you should be ok
