Boot up into safe mode and try to delete it from there. If that doesn't work click on the file and uncheck the read only attribute box if there's a checkmark in there and then try to delete it.

You can follow these instructions from Norton's on how to remove an infected file from system restore,
http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...106?Open&src=w

Another possibility is it's a dialer program. Run regedit and see if this key is in there HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run; Wink
