You have to look and see what the file paths are.

More than likely, they are in some compressed folder somewhere from some scans you have run, and are false positives.

Clean out all the archives/compressed/temps/etc in all of your removal tools programs.

Hi

If I remember right...you have xp?

By any chance were the infected files located in c:\system volume information\_restore\big long #\More numbers.exe

That is system restore. You will need to shut off restore, reboot, rescan, if clean then re-enable restore.
