Zombie virus?

Symantec Norton internet security 2010 -...

Specs: Windows Vista
Awhile ago, back in 2008 actually, I downloaded a file that I thought was the "Florentiner March" by Julius Fucik. Turns out it wasn't. Norton immediately recognized it, told me to download a trojan remover (I promptly did so) and then said the problem was fixed. Now, after I've gotten the latest version of Norton, it scans and shows me that it has yet to be resolved. It said it was detected in 2009, but it says it still hasn't been resolved. The file location (my desktop) no longer exists. Is Norton just being silly or is this virus hiding somehow? On top of this, my e-mail (through Windows Live Mail) has been sending spam ads to everyone on my contacts list. I've since deleted everyone on my contacts list so they can't receive anything anymore. I have a feeling the two are correlated. Help? Please? I could really really use it.

first of all I would DUMP Norton. It's one of the worst out there anymore IMO.
I might suggest Avast Free as it is about the best out there right now:

Be sure to use the Norton uninstaller from their website to remove Norton or NOTHING will run right.

1- Ccleaner slim
run that to clean the excess junk from your PC
2- Malwarebytes
3- Trojan Remover
4- Hitman Pro

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
