A question about Nvidia

I just bought a new laptop, with an Nvidia gt540m card. When I first accesed the nvidia control panel for assigning what program should use the graphics card instead of the hd graphcs, mcafee deleted one of the files (Uninstall.exe). When I brought it back from the quarantine and rescaned the system everything checks out ok. When I try to work with the control pannel it's ok as well. Even manually scanning the file now shows no malware. My question is: what the hell happened and should I worry about it? Also, what do do to avoid such issues in the future? The only data I have on the issue are the ones found in mcafee's history. As I can't seem to find a way to copy/paste them, I'll try to type them in:

 

Name of detection: Generic-FRAX!9F72110278FA (Trojan horse)

File: C:\Uninstall.exe

Process: C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\Control Panel Client\nvcplui.exe

Process description: NVIDIA Control Panel Application, 3.5.756.0

 

My system is Windows 7 HP 64bit

The Nvidia driver version is: 268.30

I've been running on Mcafee from the very start (first thing I did was to activate the antivirus) so I'm almost positive there is no virus there.

 

Thanks for all the help,

Piotr
