Virus Macro.Word.Cap

My virus checker informs me that Mail "Folder11.mbx" has an infested e-mail.
I have deleted the mail message and the folder from OutlookExpress. But when trying to delete the folder from my system I receive a message "ACCESS DENIED", this folder can not be deleted.
What do I do?

Sounds like the file has been marked "read only"
try changing the attributes of the file - It can be done from dos with the attrib command.
If you need help with the syntax, "type attrib /?" for help

I am not particularly good at DOS [15 years since I last used it] - so I am still stuck. Do I booth the PC under DOS ?? How do I identify the file ? How do I change the attribute ?
