OS win XP.  After boot AV halts pc with malitious script - file c:/windows/odbc.hta, file system object, get special folder.  Can't quarentine, only stop the script.  After reading solution to Q_20909740 tried to open file in notepad but it appears not to exist, searched hard drive - no result.  Is this a stealth virus, how should I get rid of it?

ohh this sounds intresting a .hta is an HTML application
basicly its a script file

it sounds like your AV has eaten it
