I'm cleaning up a friend's laptop (running Vista) that had a bunch of malware on it. In looking at the registry I came acrose a value C:\Users\Reva\AppData\Local\Temp\mscdexnt.exe in the Run key. I came up with conflicting conclusions in my Google search. Some said Mscdexnt.exe is a CD-ROM "redirector" that enables CD-ROM access from the MS-DOS and is a Microsoft app. Others say it is a variant of the lunii trojan.

What say you?

Thanks for your help.
