A few days ago I recieved a message (as my system was shutting down) that said (i think) that repentnt.exe was shutting down. I had never seen this before, so I googled it and nothing came up. After doing a system search I found it in my system32 file. The date it was created was the same date a friend accidentally downloaded p2p~worm.alcan.a, so I'm worried it wasn't the only thing they downloaded. When I tried to scan it with ewido and symantec both programs said "scan completed" but said 0 files scanned. Please help.
