Hide it.

Or - better yet - cleanup and update your update system, install SP3 and all
other updates you may have missed (critical anyway) and know that your
system is secure and patched.

Reboot and logon as administrative user.

Download, install, run, update and perform a full scan with the following
(freeware version):

SuperAntiSpyware

Reboot and logon as administrative user.

Download and run the MSRT manually:
