** Possible Virus: usr32wink.exe **

  ThisNameIsMine 13:14 08 Jun 03

I run Windows XP Pro SP1. I was browsing my hard disk and found "usr32wink.exe". It had an icon which looked like a CD. I checked in Msconfig and it was set to run at startup. I did Ctrl + Alt + Delete. I wasnt running so it must have been put there during this session. I have updated my virus definitions today and am currently running a full system scan. Could anyone please give me any information on this file. I have searched "usr32wink.exe" on google and nothing came up so I turn here for advice. As soon as I found the file I deleted it and searched for any similar copies. None were found. I disconnected from the internet and closed everything except the system proccesses as soon as I guessed what it was. I even shut down explorer.exe to prevent it modifying files if it was a virus. Any advice appreciated.

Should I restart the system and see if there are any adverse effects?

Norton Antivirus didn't find anything. Its defenitions were updated about 1 hour ago. Does that mean I am in the clear?
