Default Different Owners? Can't access file?

This is kind of complicating to explain so i'll try my best. I am using windows xp, and have just completed a norton virus scan on my computer. During the virus scan it found a virus but was unable to fix or repair it because access was denied to the file. I tried to access the file myself and again access was denied. The thing i dont understand is when i click on "start", "my computer", "C" drive, "documents & settings", there are 9 different users. 2 of which i cannot access, including one named "owner". The virus is in this file i cannot get into. How can i access these 2 files, i am the only 1 to use my computer and bought it brand new. Please Help, Thanks Chris.

Boot into safe mode, remove file. Go through Warez' guide. Remove users and their files.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
