In the case above, the file in question is located in the %system% folder (most likely the C:\Windows\System32 folder on your system)
Since this file is located in C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger it's not likely to be the virus that's mentioned there.
While I'm not a malware expert, here's a couple of things that I've learned in my travels about the web.
When you search for a filename because of a problem, you'll find lot's of stuff listing problems with that filename - but it may not be the same problem as yours.
If you search for the filename and get no results - that's suspicious, but not enough to diagnose it as a virus.
The startup listings that you find with searches will generally concentrate on the bad stuff - that's because the good stuff doesn't usually cause problems.
A file can be a good file in one location and a bad file in another location.
In short, you've gotta take it all with a grain of salt. The http://virusscan.jotti.org
scan will scan a particular file with many different antivirus scanners - but the decision is still the user's.
