There are legitimate and malware versions of this file... only scanning them will tell you if they are malware or not. If they scanned an nothing flagged them you are ok.
Now more about the ones you did find... these are known spyware related trojans... that means that an antivirus program will detect and remove the trojan but there is more to spyware than just that... use antispyware utils to help clean up the rest ( if any ) of the spyware components that may exist.
Here is a post about how I prefer to clean a system, these instructions also include cleaning spyware which often is as bad or worse than many virus's as well as other useful information HOW TO CLEAN AN INFECTED COMPUTER.
If you suspect a file to be a false positive. Test the file at [virusscan.jotti.org] and if it is a false positive, archive (zip, arc, tar etc) the file using a password and email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description as well as the password you used to archive it with.
