This thing is insidious! I suspect that it's been on this computer for years, and unfortunately, the people who this computer belongs to (I live here now) are not really tech savvy.
They have an updated version of McAfee but it couldn't completely remove it.
Anyone know of some FREE programs that will do the job?

Win XP Home SP2
1.4 GHz
512 RAM


Thanks!

Is McAfee finding the files in windows or in mail folders?

It found it in a mail folder.

Also, the patch listed is for IE 5, we have IE 7. It also says that the bug doesn't affect SP2 users. Yet we have it.

I deleted the whole mail profile (it was unused anyway.) Do you think that should be all I need to do to get rid of it?

That would be a sign of neglect, you might want to clean up a little more and take out the trash and defrag
