What is "msnphoto.scr"?

Good afternoon all,

I just had a weird thing happen on my computer and would appreciate some input, please. I'd been surfing, checking out cell phone ratings. This might be important: At one point I'd clicked on a media display, but it never started, kinda just kept "transferring from the site". So, I closed the window and went on. About 1/2 hour later, still surfing, I notice things starting to slow a bit, and then the ole CPU was cranking at 98% continually. I checked w/Task Mgr to see what was running and noticed this msnphoto.scr. MSN is my ISP. Was this related to the media show that never happened, or something else? I just logged off and did a restart and all seems to be well, but I'd still like to know for sure what that was all about. Thanks.

.scr files are typically screensaver files, but there are trojans that disguise themselves as such
