I'd like to caution everyone about this product. The program is available for free on Microsoft's site in BETA format. Meaning it's not fully tested. I installed this product on my work pc. Installation was successful and it did find a couple of spyware programs lurking about. However, it also crippled my TCP/IP connectivity beyond repair. Our I/S tech person had to perform a system restore because he was unable to reverse the changes made to my system, even after uninstalling the MS product.

Yet another reason to be wary of Microsoft.

Could have also been that spyware was affecting that file and that's why it was removed. You may want to search for a program suck as new.net in the add/remove programs. It is one of the many spyware items that you can remove properly, but will cripple stuff if it's not fully removed (which few spyware programs are smart enough to do).
