    You are not able to delete this Win32.Buddy.a. Trojan from your computer system because it alters the registry of your computer system so that it can launch at the time of reboot. It also copies its files in the directory. C:\Windows\System\NortonAntiVir\REGISTRYREMINDER.EXE hidden file to RUN= string
    It also place the AIM REMINDER.EXE file in the \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\ folder.
