I'm a good boy because I regulary update my adaware/sypware detection software and I regularly scan for those nasty little buggers. A couple of times now, I've had a stubborn one which requires me to run the scan with windows is "safe mode" before it can delete it. Well for the first time, I've got one that can't be deleted this way either. It's called Npp.dll. Symantec's website suggests doing exactly what I've described above, but it didn't work. It also suggests deleting the file via Windows explorer. That didn't work either. It's tells me the file is either in use or is write protected. Any one got any ideas on how to remove this thing?
