My friend played his cd on my pc and Norton detected these two infected files but couldn't remove them.
I took out the cd and scanned the pc again and Norton didn't pick up anything. Does this mean the pc is still clean?

Yes your PC is still clean the reason why Norton could'nt remove the virusses is becuase it is on the cd and norton can't write to the cd but it did stop the viruses to spread to your PC.
Just another example why it so important to have a antivirus installed and to keep it up to date.

Have you got an anti-virus program?
If you have did it remove this trojan virus?
If you have not an anti-virus program or the program cannot remove this trojan, then I recommend you format the hard drive and reinstall Windows, the laptop device drivers and your programs.
This is the only sure way to remove such a threat.
Although this is a drastic method, it is better to be sure you do not lose your money to crooks. After installing Windows, install a good quality anti-virus program and keep the virus definition files updated regularly.

I wouldn't try to install Norton on a machine I suspected had a virus (or at all really). There is a Norton removal tool on the Symantec website that might be useful, but you still need to get rid of the Trojan. There are a lot of free online virus scanners that should do the job. If you can go online in safe mode that would be best, or you could disable everything on startup using MSConfig.
