Hi
I recently (today) downloaded a game for my son (yeah, I know) and during the install process Microsoft Security Essentials came up with this warning. I clicked remove but it was unable to - the log is attached at the end of the post. I also ran malawarebytes and superantispyware but neither program found anything. I googled the trojan but wasn't able to get any helpful info. So far I haven't noticed any change in my PCs performance but would rather not wait until the damage is done.
I would really appreciate any help with this.
Thanks,

Security Essentials encountered the following error: Error code 0x80070005. Access is denied.

Category: Trojan Downloader

Description: This program is dangerous and downloads other programs.

Recommended action: Remove this software immediately.
