Virus Found... Can't Remove

A couple of scans have revealed:

C:/Program Files/EarthLink TotalAccess/cnfgMail.reg: Trojan.WinREG.StartPage-6 FOUND
C:/Program Files/EarthLink TotalAccess/cnfgMail.reg: Can't remove

I have been to:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\.clamwin\quarantine on my computer, and the quarantine is empty.

I don't know much about computers, viruses, or Clamwin; but is there something I should do about this?

Thank you. ---Rob

most likely this is a false positive. Try scanning the file on http://www.virustotal.com, however I am almost sure there is no threat. Clamav database has some entries identifying trojans that set Internet Explorer homepage, and sometimes identifies a harmless registry script as such.

Well, that's very interesting. I had not known about VirusTotal before.

OK, running it yeilds "no virus found" in every antivirus except one:

ClamAV devel-20060426 08.04.2006 Result: Trojan.WinREG.StartPage-6

Now, does this confirm a false positive?

Thank you! ---Rob
