I cannot delete the trojan on my flash drive.

I recently discovered a trojan that had gotten onto my computer from my flash drive, which I use on several public computers as well as my own.

I use Windows XP

The trojan is:

Hi,

I request you to kindly submit the file to the virus_research@avertlabs.com and once submitted provide me the Analysis

Please send us a sample for analysis, in a password-protected ZIP file (password - infected).

You can find detailed instructions for how to do this at http://vil.mcafeesecurity.com/vil/submit-sample.aspx
