How do I get rid of Spyware?


My son used my computer and downloaded a music program. Now I have spyware on my computer that I can't seem to delete. I used Norton Internet Security 2005 and it correctly finds the files but when I click on delete, it only gets a couple of them and for the rest it simply says "Delete failed". How else can I delete these? I started in Control Panel, Add/Remove software, and even found them in WIndows Explorer and tried to delete them but was not successful. Any ideas? Thanks.
