help me kill mcc.exe

I've got a virus "mcc.exe" on my computer. My Norton antivirus software, which is fully up to date, identifies the file as being a virus but can't delete it. When I go to the program through "explore", I can't delete it either. I get a message telling me that the program may be password protected. Zonealarm is stopping the virus doing anything too unpleasant but I'd like to kill it. Any ideas ?

I think mcc.exe is a process in windows - Microsoft Management Console. What makes you think it's a virus.

Aha - thank you old shep. Just as well I couldn't delete mcc.exe then. I know that something is wrong because my IE keeps jumping to filth. My Norton software identifies mcc.exe as the only infected file. I assumed that the whole file was the cause of the problem. If I need to keep mcc.exe and it is the source of the mucky pop-ups, how do I get it to stop ?
