    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

    Delete it from the quarantine area.

    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.
