Can't remove an infected file in my drivers

Microsoft Windows xp home edition with s...

Specs: Windows XP

I have a virus or malware (I don't know the technical name) in my system32/drivers.
Avast finds the file, it's called "smjzex.sys" but can't deal with it because it says it's attached to some peripherics.
I've managed to delete all the other files created the same day on my computer. But I can only start my computer in safe mode and I can't use the system restore to go to a previous date nor delete this specific file.

I hope you can help me.

Thank you

you can use any of these file removers to remove the file:
move on boot
Dr Delete

actually it all depends on how you got avast to deal with your problems. If you deleted the files it found, that's not good, avast usually tells you how to deal with it.

You may have to do a repair installation to get back into normal mode:

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I tried the file removers above, but it didn't help.
I also tried another one DelivFile which told me the file couldn't be removed as it is attached to a malfunctionning peripheric (code error 31).

Above all, I've found a non plug and play peripheric of the same name of these "smjzex" rootkit that I can't delete neither.

I hope someone can help me!
