Inquiry regarding a "critical" item found during scan

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone,

Not sure this is the right place to present this inquiry, if so, I apologize.

Following a quick scan with SAS a short time ago, 17 items were discovered. 16 listed as adware/cookies, but the one shown below was listed as a CRITICAL item, and a reboot was also required to complete the removal process.

(The info pasted below is copied verbatim from the log)

Trace.Known Threat Sources

C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ADMINISTRATOR\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\NIU2P33M\mwfOld03_300x250_0310[1].swf [ cache:mywebsearch.com ]

My questions: Exactly what is this item; how could I possibly have acquired it; and how serious a threat does it pose?

UPDATE: I have ascertained the info I was seeking here...elsewhere. Thanks.
