You decide if you want it or not.

Thanks...i vaguely remember at some point i may have downloaded it but no idea...The thing is it is not account specific, so no matter who logs into their hotmail account on our home pc, it gives an error at signing out time..I am not sure how to uninstall it.....any ideas?

AmbiBambi, on that same link find removal instructions that may/may not apply. My SWAG is that it's simply a worm/trojan and can be removed by a capable scanner.
Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation) can do the job and you can get it free @:
http://www.superantispyware.com/
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed Dunno about Windows 7..
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
