    Hi
    Try a scan with pc in safe mode this should allow the trojan to be deleted(if it isn't already)as the file it is infecting wont be in use

    Usually, when AMON detects a virus in a temporary folder, access to the file is blocked and the system delets it automatically in the meantime. Therefore, if you choose to delete it, you'll get an error deleting the file. With the new IMON and HTTP scanner introduced in the beta, you shouldn't come accross this problem.

    What if you choose not to use IMON or the HTTP scanner? Will I still have this problem? I thought this was an AMON problem so I am confused as to how IMON got into the pot.

    The problem is that any resident protection (in this instance AMON) can detect a virus after it's been written to the disk, however, any further malicious action is blocked. By contrast, the HTTP scanner would block the file before it was actually written to the disk.
