I get a problem anytime I go to exit MSN Explorer, which I use for email as it was bundled with my Qwest DSL service.

My anti-virus software, Trend Micro PC-cillin, pops up and says it found msvc.exe which is possibly a TSPY Embedder virus. I tell it to remove, and it removes it successfully.

The problem is I cant find msvc.exe, anywhere. I've run AdAware, Spybot, HiJackThis, and it found nothing. I ran them before, after, during, various times and nothing. But still when I exit MSN Explorer the virus message pops up.

Any ideas?

I'm using XP pro, all programs updated to latest versions.

is a core component on Invisicom Stealth Disk. Stealth Disk is a tool used to hide and/or encrypt folders on your system. If you use StealthDisk, you should leave this process running.
mssvc.exe is an application that does NOT appear to be a security risk

The Process Server database currently registers mssvc.exe to Invisicom.

This is part of Invisicom Stealth Disk.

Do you use the above tool? If not follow the instructions below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
