Ok everybody I've actually already posted ths in the malware forum since the file originates from cws, but I figure It's equally much a pc troubleshooting question.

So, I have this file in my c:\windows\system32 folder called logl.dll that I want to delete because it contains the cws.searchx trojan but no measure of violence does the trick. Windows explorer, MoveOnBoot and windows recovery console started from a xp cd all fail, reporting access is denied. What can I do?

My other post is here: http://www.spywarein...showtopic=13901

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Well well, all I needed to do was to remove the read only attribute. Silly me thought the delete command didn't care about that (just a confirmation like in windows). Well for others with the same problem I typed attrib -R logl.dll and then del logl.dll.
