My computer has detected a Trojan horse.Downloader.Zlob.HNX. It's actually listed twice in my virus vault. How do I get rid of it completely? I just wanted to ask before I clicked anything that might do more damage than good. I do have AVG Free Edition and that is what detected the virus. I think it was caused by something that my mother (ugh) accidentally downloaded called DriverCleaner. There is also something listed under my Add/Remove programs section that I have not seen before. It says SystemAlertPopup. Is that something I need or is it something that may harm my computer. It just looks suspicious so I thought I'd ask. Not sure if it is linked to the DriverCleaner/Trojans or what.

And I also have Spybot Search and Destory if that helps in any way. I've run it a few times actually and stuff keeps popping up that I've never seen.
