I would assume a virus scanner could clean that up for you.  Do you have one?



Dealing with it manually can be tedious, assuming you can find a removal procedure





or get a bigger hard drive

hard drive is big enough but the virus chest is not big enough to handle that file.

use ccleaner to clean up all your temporary files.
Next, use combo fix heres a guide http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix
then when your done. Post a log using hijack this , so we can make sure its all gone.
Then use ccleaner again  to clean up the leftovers.

Nuke your hard drive and then start from scratch.

It's the only way to be sure.
