    Excuse the crosspost, but I need as much input as I can get since I
    uninstalled the old MS Giant Anti-Spyware for the new Windows Defender.

    I just found these files in my Documents and Settings area:


    c:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\Installer

    & _42fe7987.exe

    c:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Microsoft\Installer

    Anything to be alarmed about? They are 1 and 2 kb in size.

    there was a phrase someone used to use in situations like this - i have
    a mostly yellow painting, do you think it's a picaso?

    it's generally not possible to diagnose problems just from filenames
    alone... if you think they might be malware, scan your drive with some
    anti-malware product... if you think they might be malware you
    anti-malware product can't detect, try a different product or send a
    sample to your product's vendor for analysis...

    you could also try uploading them to virustotal
