My friend found this on her computer. What are the steps to remove it? A quick response would be nice =P.

If your friend is using Norton anti-virus, see Symantec's removal directions here.

Otherwise, download and scan with Trend Micro's Sysclean Package in "SAFE MODE".
See Using the Trend Micro System Cleaner for detailed instructions.
Note: When using Sysclean its best to use the Administrator's account or an account with Administrative rights otherwise you will not have the rights to scan some locations resulting in Access is denied log entries.

If that fails, then try using Trend Micro's Worm_Spybot.gen Manual Removal instructions.
