in temporary Internet files you will basically have to empty them. The easiest way I know (with future benefits to boot for next time) is to Download & Install CCleaner. It can be done manually but CCleaner will get them all in a very short time.
Get CCleaner (Freeware). It's not an AV but an extensive temp/cache/application cleaner.
Download (& print out for reference) the Help file (descriptions of items to be cleaned), then download, save & install either the "Slim"(suggested) or "Basic"(if you need additional language files) version.These versions are 100% adware/spyware free.
Additionally, add the download page below to your IE Favorites or Bookmarks list and use it to check for updates about once per month.
In "Options", click on "Settings" and uncheck:
"automatically check for updates" to prevent getting an undesirable (adware toolbar) version from built in updater link.
I run CCleaner immediately before & after each net visit as it only takes under 5 seconds to clean.I also have it set to auto-run at boot up.
Help file to print out:

Since you're currently infected, after following directions below to install CCleaner, BUT BEFORE doing first cleaning, you will need to click on "Options" Button>then click "Advanced" & remove the check mark in box in front of: "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 48 hours".You need to empty ALL to be sure of removing infection.
Once you've run CCleaner & run another Virus Scan & come up as "no infection found"...You should re-open CCleaner and go in and re-check mark that same box for normal cleaning. Good safety feature for normal use.
Often, the first cleaning takes quite a long time as there is ofter a huge backlog of stuff that has been accumulating since day one. Once done cleaning usually only takes a few seconds.
You'll wonder how you survived without it. You're gonna Love it!!
I'd greatly appreciate your assistance on the following matter:
Shortly after visiting http://www.safelyinvest.com, a McAfee prompt came up saying I had acquired a trojan (unfortunately, I didn't take note of the exact wording). I then had Virus Scan try to take care of the problem, but it could not clean, move, quarantine or delete the trojan. So, I closed it and tried SpybotSearchandDestroy. That didn't do anything either. All it told me was I had no immediate threats.
My DAT and engine files are up date, at least that's what I'm told at
I've also tried scanning in safe mode but to no avail.
My details are as follows:
Engine Version: 5100
DAT Version: 4848
DAT File Created: 9/8/2006
