Sinowal trojan

Aloha all!

I am a music producer and have a PC in my studio that we NEVER download anything on. A few months ago, I was doing something one day and accidentally clicked something and saw a file downloading. I tried to stop it, but it was too late. Immediately, I got a sinowal warning, and I just went ahead and disabled the internet on the PC. We rarely use the PC to get online anyway, but it would be nice to get back on. I would greatly appreciate some help in getting this crap of my system.
