Outlook Virus?

One of my user's inbox in Outlook keeps getting larger and larger.  It increases by one about every 3 to 5 seconds.  It is all the way up to 2085 messages already.  I scanned the hard drive for viruses and found the IRC-Sdbot virus on the computer.  McAfee was not able to delete or move the infected file.  I let it finish scanning and restarted the computer.  I then ran the virus scan again and found no viruses.  I search google and could find any information similar to this.  Please help.  Thanks.

Trend Micro site has a removal instruction. If you don't have a antivirus software you can use an online scanner like House Call (http://www.trendmicro.com/syndication/housecall/).
