I did a full system scan for this virus that my program (Nortons) has dectected. Well it found two files and was able to fix one of them except this other one it can't fix, quarentine or even delete! It's driving me up the wall and I can NOT fix it! Can anyone tell me what option I have here? I don't know if this'll help, but the name of the file is "wininet.dll" I could really use some help here. Thanks!

Might Iask what the name of the virus is that it detected? Not the file thats infected but the name of the actual virus.
