    BD can't delete it because the virus probably is inside a heavily compressed archive..

    to delete the archive you should go to the directory in which it is stored and delete it there, make sure you have a system recovery point before you do this.

    in a terminal type :

    cd /directory/directory/directory

    change 'directory' according to the actual directories in which the archive is stored if there are more directories just add them with a "/" (slash) in front of 'em

    When inside the correct folder type :

    del filename.extension

    change 'filename' and 'extension' according to the filename in which the virus was detected
