I googled it.

It looks to be same ploy as other ransonware. All bad news if you install such.

Re: remove software

The usual way to remove software is via Control Panel > Programs and Features.

Didn't Trend Micro offer to remove the malware?

That would remove it. You can as Kees noted use this method after Trend Micro killed the malware.

I'd ask who you obtained Photoshop 7 to replace it with a clean factory version since those pirate copies often have malware or worse.
