I found the following files after running Win Patrol, they were listed

Thanks for your reply but one problem...when I do a search for these
files the search turns up "nothing found" and looking at the path that
WinPatrol displays for them the files do not exist.  It is a temp folder
and WinPatrol says "local file not found".

Files can be marked with the attributes of Hidden and System files.
You have to search for Hidden and System files and/or change the attributes of
the files in
the folder so you remove the Hidden and System file attributes.

Aware of that...have "show hidden files and folders" selected.

Have you tried opening a Command Prompt, changing the directory to the one the
file is
supposedly in and typing...

attrib -r -h -s *.exe

It is possible that this process is hiding the EXE from being seen in Explorer.

I'll give that a try.

That results in only two files being shown in the following directory:

C:\DOCUME~1\BRIANS~1.JON\LOCALS~1\TEMP\

wic.exe  and xpinstal.exe

Please submit both files to Virus Total as mentioned in an earlier reply.
