You can goto the link below and download the W32.Beagle Symantec removal tool.

It's a Trojan file - there's some info here:
http://es.trendmicro-europe.com/enterprise/security_inf...

There's also a freeware program - Advanced Process Manipulator that will
let you examine the exe files running within services
(in this case probably Explorer.exe) and terminate them. Once they're no
longer in use, the file should be deletable.

Next - See the information on this site:
http://www.aumha.org/a/parasite.htm
particularly the sections on the correct methods of running:
CWShredder,
Spybot Search&Destroy 1.3 and
Ad Aware SE has now replaced AdAware 6
(See Lavasoft forums for a guide to full scan recommended settings on this
new version).
Also read the section on using and interpreting
HiJack This.
NOTE: DO NOT use the 'fix' option on 'HiJack This' without advice.
Everything including necessary system files and settings are included along
with the bad stuff. Instead if needed post the log at a forum such as:
http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=5622&...

http://computercops.biz is also a good place with help.

Malware is very good at using 'windows-like' file names to complicate
things further for the unwary.

Hope this helps
