This trojan - WinPro 32 (or something similar) keeps reappearing on my laptop. Although I used the Zonelabs security suite and got it "deleted", is it true that some trojans can never get deleted?? Will it get removed or deleted if I completely reformat the hard drive??
Will gratefully accept any advice from the gurus....

Try HijackThis. It has solved many similar issues I've had with my PC. It is not the typical program which cleans your harddrive after running it. It produces a log which you can either have analyzed automatically online (see below) or at any of the available forums and get online assistance.
PS Perhaps you should first make sure that this is actually a trojan/addware in the first place. Find out the correct name of the file/program (including its' extension) and look it up online (ie, here http://startup.networktechs.com/search.php).
