Anyway, I ran Uniblue's ProcessScanner to see how it might differ from other scans. I hadn't remembered seeing fahcore_80.exe (Folding@Home) on the process tab of my Task Manager before, but it showed up in this scan, and sure enough, there it was in Task Manager. (I have F@H configured to load as a startup in Services, and it's running there too.) When I clicked on it in the ProcessScanner results, up came this information:
fahcore_80.exe General Information

Note: OT or not? I don't know. Something very weird is that when I highlighted and copied the text above, the last three lines were not on the page, I swear. Nor were they there as hidden text in the background color.
Another entry in my Google search was this July 2006 blog, called Google is Your Default Search. This had a follow-up link saying that the bug was removed and going to another blog entry called The Search Battle For IE7.
Dang, now I forget my questions.
Oh, yeah.... Should I try to track down this Google file, or is it a lost cause? How on earth are it and McAfee involved in running F@H, for heaven's sake? Could it be that this Microsoft Gold Partner has a screwed-up report?
Thanks to anyone who bothered to read this far.
