SuperAnti-Spyware froze while scanning WMSysPr9.prx. I read somewhere that it was a trojan. Is it?

Can you do a search on your computer and tell me the location of that file?

It could be a Windows Media Player file or a Trojan. All depends on the location.

Can you try downloading another scanner (such as MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware) and running a Complete System Scan with that?

It does look like it might be infected. But could still be an oddly placed file.

Yeah, Windows doesn't like people to delete things out of the C:\Windows folder.

To be honest, if you aren't having any problems, I wouldn't worry about it. If it went through MBAM and Norton just fine, it's probably just a file that SAS has problems scanning.
