How to eliminate win32/spatet.a

by gea2007 / February 22, 2010 10:29 PM PST

My nod32 detected this trojan at appdat\roaming\windl32\win32.exe

Indicates file was sent to quarantine. Went to quarantine and eliminated the file, but reappears, again and again, as does eset warning windows indicating presence of file.

What should I do?

Have windows vista

Thanks in advance
