I have an adware file that keeps getting found by Norton AntiVirus, but I can't seem to find the location it points to, and, subsequently, I can't find the file to delete it.

Here's the description Norton gives:

"The file C:\RECYCLER\S-1-5-21-117609710-920026266-1708537768-1004\Dc183.exe is a Adware threat."

I can't find C:\RECYCLER to begin with...

Can somebody please help me find this file and delete it because it's getting darned annoying...

Is there anything else I need to do or will that take care of it?

That may take care of it. Hard to say right now

Do this as well:

Please run two online virus scans:

Then let us know if its working better and what the scans found.
