I just dumped MSSE & went w/ Avast! v6 (freebie) also after getting another (7 found) trojan w/ a "Win 7 AntiVirus 2012" scanner
Sadly it appeared to be a bad link @ DrudgeReport that infected me, it (would) shut down IE9 & the scanner started up.
I ran Malwarebytes anti malware to remove the baddies, think/hope I'm clean now.
Note: I did a custom install of Avast! so as to not have the Avast! gadget added to my sidebar.
