How do I remove a virus?

Question

The other day I recieved a warning from my Norton's Virus Protection that I have a Trojan.Vundo on my C:\WINDOWS\system32\awtqp.dll file. How would I go about removing this?...Norton's said access to the file was denied and couldn't be removed, then it continued to give me the same annoying error message over and over saying it was on my computer, even after I downloaded their "Trojan.Vindo Remover" that was unsucessful in it's search to find it (it scanned all the files on my whole computer again). I've only noticed it going a little slower lately, mainly shutting down and starting up, but how can I fix this? Please help, thanks

Try this program: http://www.noadware.net/?hop=springhill Or this one: http://paretologic.com/xoftspy/lp/14/ Both are free and very good at virus killing.
