i use NOD32 anti virus which i have found to be an excellent programand, and am running windows XP pro. the program has detected a trojan (trojan Win32/TrojanDropper.FunWeb.A) in the folder C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6PVGL4JM\SmileyCentralInitialSetup1.0.0.8[1].cab ........but it cannot delete the trojan. when i go to look for the trojan i find there is nothing inside my C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files folder,  but when i look at the properties of that folder it says it contains 724 files in 14 folders at 14 MB, i do have "Show hidden files and folders" selected.
can anyone explain this



thanks
