Hi! My computer has been infected by a virus that goes by the name, Mediapass. I have located the file(s), but cant delete them. Mediapass.exe and Mediapass.dll and so on. There are 3 files that cant be deleted. When i try to delete them my computer tells me that they are beeing used, I then try pressing CTR-ALT-DEL to stop my computer from using them, but the moment i mark for example Mediapass, and press the cancel process or end process button, it immediatly pops up about 100 new mediapass.exe or/and mediapass.dll files. My guess is that the hacker who made this virus knew that we "noobs" would try to do that, and made it impossible to delete the virus, that way anyway. I then run a full system check on Norton 2004, Norton finds it, i mark it- try to delete it, but no. It cant be deleted. What can i do?

Mod Edit:
I've moved your post to the appropriate forum. Here it will get the attention it deserves.
