My current Windows XP installation is Service Pack 2. I am using Trend Micro PC-Cillin Internet Security 2007. While browsing, I noticed a warning from Trend Micro that I had never seen before: it alerted me that I was infected w/ a virus, but it could not quarantine the file. The trojan name, in Trend Micro's library, is TROJ_BSCOPE.A, and the infected .dll (which I have located in the C:/Windows folder) is titled svcbrg.dll. I do not know whether or not this is merely an infected .dll that can be removed without hassle, or a .dll that has been overwritten and is crucial to running Windows. Furthermore, the .dll appears to be in use, or at least is write-protected.

Fortunately, upon rebooting my computer, RUNDLL32 says: "Cannot run svcbrg.dll. Access is denied.". However, this window will pop up every 60 seconds, and accumulates quickly. While I feel fortunate that the .dll is not running, this is still something I do NOT want on my computer.

Now, I have two questions:

1. What type of infection is this?
2. What should I do to go about removing it?

Thank you in advance.
