shellex.exe is a vital Windows system file that gets used all the time and is therefore a good choice for a trojan to infect.  Have you tried an updated copy of your Norton Anti?  Usually newer versions can repair what earlier ones can only detect.

Otherwise, locate a clean copy of this file from your Windows CD or a known uninfected system.  Boot up into SAFE MODE and replace this file with the clean one.  Then re-scan using Norton to make sure you've removed all traces of this lest you be re-infected.
