I have accidently downloaded some adware with a flashplayer that Adware or my anti-virus won't handle. It keeps giving me system alerts for [email protected] It also keeps putting up ads to buy various security and anti-virus programs. I've found the implant but when i try to highlight and delete it it tells me "Cannot delete, there has been a sharing violation. The source or destination file may be in use."
They are titled "system" and "SYSTEM.ALT"
How can I get rid of this?

Click on Hijack this log link in my signature and follow instructions in #3.
