How do I remove the medfos.j trojan?

Mcafee scan says I have a virus. I can't quarantee it.

The infected file is qetomc.dll.

I am told to restart the computer and the file will be scanned.

I am concerned if I restart the computer I will trigger the trogan.

Please help?

Try restarting into Safe Mode by tapping F8 repeatedly while booting up.

Then open Computer and right-click the hard drive and select Scan.

All you'll see is some animation in the icon near the clock but hovering over it will give you a progress report.
