    Not sure what the problem is:

    I'm running Windows XP and I have an autorun.j file identified on a removable HDD as probably a variant of Win32/Agent.MFNZBXQ trojan. NOD32 Antivirus 4 claims to clean it by deleting but the file remains on the drive, even after re-booting.

    In researching this problem I've found that my recycler folder has symptoms of a recycler infection - i.e. sub folders with strange names in the recycler folder. I'm unable to manually delete them but I can empty the recycler folder of other regular files. a recycler virus has not been detected by NOD32, just evidence in the folder.

    Am I missing something obvious here?

    I'd suggest booting to safe mode and renaming the "Recycle" folder which will most likely prevent the malware from starting automatically.
    When done, submit the files from the renamed folder to ESET per the instructions here.
