What is a Trojan Windows32 Virus?

When I ran my antivirus software this is what it kept telling me. And we've only been online for about a week. So I'm completely in the dark to all this computer stuff. I know how to play spider solitare like a champ though. But any of you computer people out there let me know how to get rid of this thing???

If it keeps popping up, it probably gives you two or three options of getting rid of it. Don't press ignore, or you will have trojan viruses dropped in your programmes. You should have the options either to cleanse, or send to vault. Cleansing, it would seem, only stops the virus temporarily, so I would suggest you send it to your vault. It will be kept there by your antivirus software, out of harm's way. Don't, whatever you do let it into your programmes... please! Good luck and Brightest Blessings.

Ran another scan this morning and the virus is still in my chest. So I think I might have figured this computer thing out. Well let's not go that far just yet. Thanks again for all your help.
