    Just for all of you who are having problems with viruses, I get some malware.TROJ_IMISERV.C when I scan C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\85IFGPAV with www.housecall.antivirus.com. I tried running a full scan on my computer, I get this message, "housecall has found and cleaned a malware.TROJ_IMISERV.C". "Please reboot your computer to completely clean the trojan". Now I've restarted my computer, and then it came up as clean. Untill I found this file C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\85IFGPAV\f22[1].exe, when I tried opening the folder using winrar, I got some suspicious files so I scanned them and Then I got the same message. "housecall has found and cleaned a malware.TROJ_IMISERV.C" "Please reboot your computer to completely clean the trojan". I imagine that if somebody searches any of this online, it might help him, which is the reason I posted this.

    Note: the files in the C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\85IFGPAV\f22[1].exe, which is a "GSfx Archive - Cabinet Self-Extractor" has the following files in it. app.exe, autoexec.bat, config.sys, dict.bat, expirins.sys, ip.sys, rimix.exe, settings.sys, surce.exe, tool.sys, trust.exe, update.exe, user.bat, winsows.sys.

    this file Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\85IFGPAV\f22[1].exe doesnt look suspicious for you !!!!!
    i wont even try to open it ,anything in temp ,is for delete !
    one more thing winrar ,use it to open files that finishes with extensions :rar.tar.and zip , and not absolutely not an exe ending extension file .
    be cautious is the word ,if you wanna keep your machine running good .
