Attack on computer blocked by norton

Dear Friends
Please look at the enclosed screen capture and give me some advice/help. I tried to delete the file mentioned in the report but was unable to do so. The message that appeared stated 'You need permission from a Trusted Intaller to make changes to this folder - Internet Explorer. Date created 14/7/2009 04:20'. The prorgram folder shows this file was modified on 25/02/09 19:58-This may relate installation of IE9.
Thank you very much for help.

As far as I can see, there's nothing you should delete. Only file name I can see there is iexplore.exe, which is the executable file of Internet Explorer. It is a system file, belonging to Windows. You should not delete that.

That message does not tell you got a virus or other malware, and it does not ask you to delete something. In fact, your Norton tells you no actions are needed from your side. The message only tells that Norton has blocked a dangerous site from opening a page or doing something else nasty.

So, there's no issue, nothing to delete. Be happy that Norton blocked that intruder, which seems to be a fake AV scan which when allowed could have caused some serious problems.
