Hi, Why do I want to send to McAfee the following file?: This Program that is not detected by McAfee Scan Must be a Trojan(i have reasons to think that). Furthermore, it may be a "Boot Sector virus" or somthing like that(not sure of the name) but the problem is that it SWITCH OFF MY GRAPHIC CARD VENTILATOR(I'm sure its that program because since i did what i'm explaining in this thread i have no more problems)
Why in this forum section ?: I had no other place/way to send it to McAfee(i'm not allowed to post anywhere but here) and even after a McAfee Scan(wich dign't worked) i was not able to send you it.
What happened ?:Before having "neutralised" this "virus", the only way i had to see it was when i used alt+tab function, where i could see a proces running on my computer named Form1. I had no way to select/see it, the window of this program was invisible, the only way i had to interact with it, was selecting it(still nothing happens) then hit Alt+F4, wich close the program and make it disapear from the alt+tab until my computer reboots.
What did i do ?:After an investigation, i found that the process name were windows.exe(seen with the alt+ctrl+del) then i looked for it with a search in my whole computer, i found it in System32 under the name of windows.exe.
What did i Noticed ?: -I directly went into msconfig and regedit to remove it from auto boot(sent a screenshot). After a computer restart, the "way" you see in the MSconfig changed, the HKCU Disapeared and became directly SOFTWARE/Microsoft/[...] -After another investigation, i found that it was bad deed of a keygen(No comment) (i have no way to find where did i downloaded it) Observing the facts and how does it reacts after being moved from it's original directory, i deducted(i'm not sure) that the program creates a temp file named "GTA Keygen.exe" in the same directory of windows.exe
To McAfee: I'm a bit disapointed that such a antivirus program did not recognised it
P.S.: I'm French so i apologise for my english faults, grammar and all that stuff.

No anti-virus engine can detect and remove everything out there. It's up to you to excercise due care. It's also a good idea to carry some extra anti-spyware applications for such an occasion. There is a list here: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=136913
