I was just chatting on aim when Nortan AV Corp. popped u with this alert of a trojan virus. I am running a system scan as I am writing this. Should I go in there and manualy delete the file? And what else should I do?

This is the info on the screen that popped up:

Scan type: realtime protection scan
event: virus found
virus name: trojan horse
file: C\: Program Files\Windows SyncroAd\Winsync.exe

What are my options?

You can try following this guide:

You should be able to remove it that way.
If it doesn't work, try running a system scan from Windows Safe Mode (F8 during boot).

I would run virus scan and see if the file is still there, then clean it or delete it.
