TROJAN VIRUS in my system files

  1. I have recently picked up a virus (norton catagorizes it as a downloader). Problem is, the virus is found at C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\IXP775.dll

    Norton cannot touch the file, and even in safe mode my computer will not let me delete it, move it, rename it, or alter its contents.

    How can I fix this problem???

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    my e-mail is


    Edit: forgot to mention-its a XP.
