Norton has found a Trojan in a file awab.exe it is unable to fix it . I am unable to delete it. I have managed to quarantine it. I have tried a search here no results.
Question 1 what should I do?
Should I continue to use the PC?

Computer tech skills low.

TIA
Howard

Do you think it is OK to delete these files if I don't know what they are?
If they are quarantined does that make them unusable by the PC? Everything else seems to work OK. There are 2 files now awab.exe and rs.exe.
Norton has not found any more for several days now.

rs.exe might be this. It's ok to delete that.

awab.exe, I found several reports of all of which indicate it's ok to delete.
