A neighbour did me a "favour" by loading a Movie Download Program "Funshion" onto my computer.
Ad Aware identified it as the source of a Trojan, namely: TrojanWin32.Genericpakllcobra.

I have tried several times to uninstall and delete the program, and have been unable to:
each time I attempt to do so I receive the following message: Cannot delete 1302661585_1301473511_154.dat. It is being used by another person or program. Close any program that might be using this program and try again.

This message comes up irrespective of the fact that the only program open is Control Panel Add or Remove Programs/ Uninstall .

Appreciate ideas on getting ride on Funshion on Line - Running XP Pro

Many thanks in anticipation

Try this
http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/
You may need to Show Hidden Files And Folders (Windows explorer>Tools>Folder Options>View (tab)) to see that file.

Do it in Safe Mode.
And ditch AdAware - get Spybot, Malware Bytes and Superantispyware.

Would not be surprised if Kaspersky's TDSS killer does not find something

Its a false + with ad-aware. (http://www.lavasoftsupport.com/index.php?showtopic=30226) if Ashampoo powerup is installed. And if you havent updated Ad-aware
