I have found one google result referencing it and they say it's malware.

AVG Free does not detect it as a virus. It tried to ping a remote machine once I started my netbook, windows firewall blocked it. There are currently two instances of it running according to task manager.

Anyone have any experience of it or how to remove it?

Edit: A search turned up the following:
C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\PRO32.EXE-3AD94CD5.pf
C:\WINDOWS\system32\pro32.exe

Their 'date modified' is basically when I started my machine up this morning. So I'm thinking another process must have put them there. I.e. if I merely delete them likelihood is that they'll just reappear on next startup.

I'd like to know more about this thing and how it got onto my machine before I delete it. (I was browsing a few security related sites yesterday so I think that's how it got infected, a knowledge of 0day exploits would have been quite common on these sites I guess. My browser is Google Chrome.
