On a computer in my office they clicked on one of those fake FedEx emails that get sent out and they started getting a System Progressive Protection pop-up screen.

I have tried:

and
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-progressive-protection

to remove it but I have a problem getting Hitman Pro to give me the free 30-day trial.  Anyone know of any other free Root Kit programs that I can use to stop this little bugger from coming back?
