    Norton AntiVirus has detected a virus: W32.Welchia.Worm
    Action taken: Unable to repair file.

    I can't get rid of the message from my desk top. I can't locate or deleate this file. What do I need to do. Norton is no help.

    go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
