    one way would be formatting the drive and installing the OS.Also try other anti virus like anti vir,mcafee,etc

    Hello Friend The Best way im suggesting is Install AVG Antivirus, it is the most rated anti virus for Home Purpose, you have mentioned that you are using Norton. Make Sure that you are updating your Virus Definitions.

    Probably, it's related to this trojan family, which uses Winlogon key to load it's file. We have to use HijackThis to remove it. Download HijackThis and unzip it to dedicated folder. Then run it and click the button Do a System scan and save log file. It will give you a log file. Copy and paste the complete contents of that log.

    Note: Do NOT remove anything/everything in HijackThis, if you don't know what you are doing.

    use ' delete doctor' utility, from www.wincustomize.com
    lock the sticky trojan with it, and click delete. then reboot.
    ur job will be done.

    I got winosz32.dll too, Norton found it but couldn't delete quarantine or repair it. If you got to Norton Internet Security after its found it, Click the Norton Antivirus tab, click Reports, View Report Activity Log, then Log Viewer pops up, select Norton AntiVirus, Threat Alerts, and click on the one that couldn't be deleted and then it should say something like "Source: C:\WINDOWS\system32\winosz32.dll
    Click for more information about this threat : Trojan.Nebuler"
    click the "Trojan.Nebuler" and it brings you to their site, they have it now, i dont know if they did when you checked, anyway they give great instructions on what to do! i got it off and its not buggin me anymore
