\015\012Download the free "Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool" from http://support.microsoft.com

\015\012It can remove that "System Pro" trojan.
\015\012
\015\012Then, access: http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft
\015\012to get _QUALITY_ anti-virus software, which should have detected and blocked whatever was downloaded, before it did any damage.
\015\012
\015\012But, "best practises" say that you need to "flatten-and-rebuild" your computer, because you can _NEVER_ be sure that you have 100% removed any computer-virus.
