Removing suspicious or "difficult" files with a self-booting Linux live distro as Reason suggested may indeed help and is fairly easy to do. Knoppix or Ubuntu are good. Knoppix has a lot of tools that are quick and easy to use. I think it's a much smaller download, too...but not sure...it's been awhile.
One of the options is to force a delete of "any" selected file. I've used it with safety and success..although anytime you force deletion of a file you run the risk of crippling the system.
I'd make a backup before you do anymore...but realize that when you backup a potentially infected disk...that the backup drive may then also become infected, and attaching that backup drive to a different system (even if you don't transfer any files) could then in fact infect that system's disks, ad infinitum. There's some really nasty malware out there from really sick people.
If you do find your system was infected, then once you've got things fixed on your original system...before using the backup drive in any system...I'd do a deep format of the entire backup drive using a self-booting CD/DVD linux-based drive/disk manager.
Another thing to keep in mind, is if you have a multi-drive system, the malware (if that's what it was) can be resurrected from the other drives and after a reboot you could be right back where you started before you cleaned your disk. Sometimes you have to use a self-booting malware killer to keep Windows out of every part of the loop while you get rid of the malware. There's a list and short descriptions and links to a number of different such tools at my post: http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/77716/#592004
