Please Help! Need to delete optimizer pro but Norton does not see it as a threat.

Hi, I apologize now as i am a bit of a computer numpty! I somehow managed to download Optimizer Pro onto my laptop. It is now giving me bogus messages about threats and problems and making it run generally slowly. I read somewhere that this file is spyware and bad news but i cant uninstall it the usual way.  I have norton installed but it doesnt see it as a threat.

If anyone has any advice i would be very grateful.
