Can't clean/repair W32.Spybot.Worm

By jfsalazar ·
Hi,
I'm kind of confused, I'm supposed to be "protected" by Norton A/V 2004, Spybot and Spywareblaster, but it just popped up a Norton window reporting "rpcxWindows.exe" as being infected by "W32.Spybot.Worm" and it can't be repaired ... if my A/V can't who/what can?
I'm searching Internet for more info about rpcxWindows.exe but there isn't any ... please your help and comments will be appreciated,

YEs it doens't look like a system file.
Just delete the file and delete it also out of your recycle bin!
If you are denied access to the file by your AV program and the program can't delete it then stop your AV (anti-virus) program and do it manually and afterwards restart your AV program.

Are you sure your virus information is current?
Mcafee says their DAT file from april 2003 will clean it. Thuey also give this warning:
"If you are using P2P software (Kazaa, Gnotella, Bearshare, Morpheus, eDonkey, eMule, etc.) be very careful with downloaded executable files. "

If you have XP or ME turn off System Restore or you will get it back as soon as you reboot.
