My computer recently got infected by the mcc.exe trojan. I followed a post on the security page of dslreports.com and managed to get rid of it. However, I want to make sure that my computer has not been infected/hijacked by anything else. So...

I updated and ran my copies of Norton Antivirus, Spybot S&D, and Ad-Aware 6.0. I ran a few web-based virus scanners (housecall.trendmicro.com, RAV antivirus, and Mcaffee). These managed to find two trojans in temporary internet files (JS/Psyme.gen and Exploit-MhtRedir.gen). From the description of these files, it seems these might be the way that mcc.exe got on my computer.

I downloaded and ran CWShredder. It found a file that it said might be part of CWS.Control.4, but suggested that if I wasn't sure that I post it in this forum for advice. The file was:

C:\Windows\uninsqvp.exe

Is this file malicious? Should I get rid of it?

Thanks!

I think I figured out what the file uninsqvp.exe does. It is the Quick View Plus uninstaller. I guess its nothing malicious.
