    If anything doesn't work go to the command prompt( make sure u have closed WINDOWS) and try and delete them... this will work;)

    As vandit said, delete the files from command prompt and restart...If the problem still persistes, try to get an exclusive tool from Norton at http:\\securityresponse.symantec.com

    Use Unlocker to detect which programs are using those temp files... try unlocking and delete...

    Use startup buddy to know which file is infected. Next safe start the system using F8 and delete the file.
