    Hi All
    Recently my computer got infected by a virus and I think it was a Win32: Malware-gen as suggested in the xp forum.
    Long story short, Malwarebytes and TDSS killer seem to have removed the infection, since everything is working fine and normal again.
    The infection has left a folder in C:\ Windows that cannot be deleted by any standard methods.
    The name of the folder/ file is $NtUninstallKB10051$
    This file can not be accessed or opened, however Windows defrag shows it as a folder or file that can not be fragmented, and contains the following..
    1167811288\U\[email protected]
    1167811288\U\[email protected]
    Someone in the xp forum suggested that it might be a zero something and go to this form.
    I just would like to get rid of this folder.
