My computer has been a little on the slow side recently, and I've been wanting an excuse to update to Windows 7 32 bit from Vista, so I did that recently. Update went fine, internet browsing was still a little slow, signaling to me that something might be wrong.

Norton scan -- turned up nothing
Malwarebytes -- borks out with an error message every time it reaches Norton's program folder and has to shut down. Typical Windows error message "Such and such had to shut down. Would you like to send a report to Windows" etc.

Panda Activescan however, came up with something:

W32/Xor-encoded.A
c:\users\kira\appdata\local\virtualstore\windows\temp\naveb2a.tmp

I tried deleting it, no go. I tried deleting it with Killbox. That worked, but then it just came back. I don't want to have to buy Panda Scan just to get rid of it, so any help would be appreciated. Fortunately, it looks like it's the only nasty bug I have on my system right now, but google hasn't really helped me find any good fixes.
