What antivirus? Have you tried perhaps running a different one (try http://free.antivirus.com, click on Cleanup Tools and download HouseCall).

Try HouseCall then. And afterwards, do yourself a favour and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

I am not saying one or another is more up-to-date. I just asked for you to try these other tools to scan - AND PROTECT - your PC.

Seriously though, never heard of VirusTotal, so I'd stick to the other two.

Check Virustotal out they can scan a suspect file through multiple anti virus programs.

Personally I wouldn't touch the telecom connection manager with a 12ft barge poll!  But that view is from expreience with people installing it and having more problems than before.

I am guessing that it has picked up those files as false positives rather than viruses (based on your statement of it being a fresh install)

I would also strongly suggest that you install an antivirus program on your PC (Avast! or AVG Free).  Even if you practice safe surfing the risk of getting an virus infection is still there.
OR
Install a gateway Antivirus appliance

OMG!!!!11

You have never heard of VirusTotal.com??
Its actually really handy, its a web app that lets you upload files and check them against around 40 different antivirus's.

I suggest that you try it.

you're kidding right ?
so you have to upload a file to it to check it for viruses ..
Why not just run a decent virus scanner on your own computer as by the time you upload the file your computer is already infected ..

AVG free picks up everything if you don't want to pay for a virus scanner.

Agreed, sarcasm?(hard to tell through the net)
Why run a file through a website first? just get a good free or paid for scanner:

Free good low profile ones:
Avast!, Avira, AVG, Trend Micro Housecall(As MF mentioned)

Good paid ones:
norton 2010(2009 is rubbish avoid), Panda Security

AVG free picks up everything if you don't want to pay for a virus scanner.

Because it has the advantage of checking against nearly 40 antivirus's.
Which is good in case your one did not pick it up, you can sort of work out how many antivirus apps have rated it as a virus and make an informed decision.

Also, you may not be infected by it, you may have a suspect zip file, for instance.

From a logical point of view, using 40 AV engines to check files means you're going to get 40 times the number of false alarms.

I haven't used VirusTotal - does it tell you which engine(s) reported the file as a virus/trojan? Or which ones showed it as clean?
