.etl files? Virus or no virus?
before today's scan I have never even heard of files that ends with .etl. Are they viruses and how do I delete them because just pressing delete doesn't work?

I get the message that I am not authorised to remove them... I am the only admin on this computer so it makes me wonder...

So far Norman Malware Cleaner cleaner has really done the trick for me but now I am starting to wonder!

Anyone who knows what .etl stand for and HOW do I remove them?

This is what the log said after finished scan:
