Default Spyware

Each time I run Norton I get, the same message saying I have Spyware and I cant delete it through Norton or through doing a search on my computer because I cant find it. The following is the name of the file and the Security center's response:

"The file C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\rundlg32.dll is a Spyware threat"


Security center's response:

"Spyware.Iwantsearch
Detected as: Spyware.Iwantsearch"

does anyone know how I can delet this file because it comes up each time I run a scan and it gets annoying when I cannot delete it.
