Hi webpanther,
Try online scanners...
Check these links for online virus scanners.  It's recommended to run at least two of these.  
  Norton/Symantec --> http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/default.asp?productid=symhome&langid=ie&venid=sym
  Trend Micro -->     http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
  Panda ActiveScan--> http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
  McAfee Security --> http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp
  Stinger -->         http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.exe

These links Check for Spyware:
  Spybot-S&D -->  http://www.safer-networking.org/
  HijackThis -->  http://www.spychecker.com/program/hijackthis.html
  Ad-Aware -->    http://www.netsecurity.about.com/library/blfreespyware.htm
  Web Shredder--> http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html#cwshredder
  Pest Patrol --> http://www.pestpatrol.com/downloads/eval/download.asp
  PCHell removal->http://www.pchell.com/support/spyware.shtml

  Make sure that after downloading these, that you update them.  It helps to try at least two of these.
  If all else fails, download HijackThis and post the log that is generated after running it on your system.

Open a Command Prompt window and leave it open. Close all open programs. Click Start, Run and enter TASKMGR.EXE Go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe. Leave Task Manager open. Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory the undeletable file is located in. At the command prompt type DEL where is the file you wish to delete. Go back to Task Manager, click File, New Task and enter EXPLORER.EXE to restart the GUI shell. Close Task Manager.

Hi!

You could try deleting them in safe mode.

Good luck!

Have you tried recovery console?
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=229716

Boot into the RC and try deleting it that way...

At the prompt you would need to type
CD\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 <Enter>
REN AZMDLOADER.CPY.DLL DELME.NOW <Enter>
REN AZMDLOADER.DLL DELMETOO.NOW <Enter>

Now boot up into Windows and you should be able to delete these two files (now called DelMe.Now and DelMeToo.Now)
This should do it...

Try this with spaces...
If C:\winnt is your prompt, type
CD SYSTEM32 <enter>
otherwise
CD WINNT\SYSTEM32 <enter>

Recovery console is a bit more cumbersome than the DOS-type command prompt...
You can use CD\foldername in a command prompt.  RC prefers specific folders...
Glad it worked for you! Thanx
