Thanks VOG""
I have already tried that but it seems to reactivate on startup and I was hoping some one could give me some idea where it is likely to have originated from.

Disable system restore this will clean out all of your restore points and then run something like ccleaner click here which will clean out all of the temporary folders and prefetch folder. Then reboot go into safe mode and delete it again thats reg keys and all folders it refers too, run a scan with norton afterwards and another antispyware program of your choice and then reboot.

Thanks for your response, I've just kicked in for the day. Will do as you suggest and let you know the results, although my normal protection software Skybot, Adaware & Spycatcher didn't seem to be able to deal with it. I did manage to download and run "Super Spy Blocker" that appears to have had some success and stopped the .exe files from loading.
