    Just for kicks:
    Btw, that .rar file, did you try to open it or did you try to delete it or both?
    If it asks you admin password to delete it, it most likely is locked or has different permissions. Take a look at the GET INFO window of that .rar file.

    Btw, where did you get the .rar file (link?) and what application do you want to use to extract it?

    And since I came out:

    It was a password protected rar file, not a bloody virus.

    There are many types of files shown on the system, but not sure that every one is virus. And if you have any doubt about that than don't use and consult to an expert PC user.

    Have you forgotten your SPAM links or what is this?

    If the OP has a "virus file" on his or her computer, surely it will not affect Mac OS X.
