Try booting up in Safe Mode ~ then run your AV, again.

[i love Trojans ~ if you want to do it yourself, just find the bugger, usually in Windowssystem32 and start listing by date and time ~ it's usaually at the top of the list ~ lol]

delete all your tmp files. if it is a virus it should be spotted somewhere else. if it is just a random occurence of a string that looks like a string in a virus (which is how the scanner detects it) then it should solve that problem. since it detects them i wouldn't be too worried about them being hidden afterwards if you don't find them after deleteing the temps. if it could hide you wouldn't have found it in the first place.
