Is it Virus?

When looking at a DIY website, my friend's PC suddenly flashed up that she was infected with a trojan, it was asking if she wanted to do a scan, and then found several things wrong. It's called Malware Alarm 2.1, it even put an icon onto the desktop. It wouldn't do anything, like go through its programme or cancel, although the PC still works.

She went to uninstall to try and delete it but it wouldn't go. I suggested starting in safe mode and then uninstalling, which appeared to work yesterday.

However, after she's switched off overnight and back on this morning the damn thing is back again.

What do we do, and how do we get rid of it?
