My computer was hacked recently and a "Network Neighborhood" icon was placed on my desktop. Windows Explorer revealed that a number of files have been placed on my hard drive with various directories and sub-directories.

I have tried to delete the icon and the files and have been unable to do it. When one of the files are clicked, a pop-up window comes up asking for a password.

How do I remove these files? I am on cable and have Nortons' Personal Firewall.
