    My system mecahnic registry cleaner reports that Mcfee scanned spoolss.exe and
    spoolss.dll but then put it in the excluded item and made a registry entry.
    So can it be that those two files are infected but Mcafee could not clean it as
    they were system files. In that case what should I do and if that is not the case what
    does the registry entry mean which is only for these two system files as excluded
    items from scan and not any other system files and what should I do?.

    I am using Win XP and IE 6.0
    Thanks

    How about some REAL information, like the EXACT message
    or error that you received; NOT some vague reference.

    FYI, those two files are the printer spooler subsystem and
    a library that contains functions for the PSS.
