Hello all,
On Nov 16,2006 I had a schedule run of MRT in extended /quiet mode overnight.
I checked the results the next day and found the following:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool v1.22, November 2006
Started On Thu Nov 16 00:00:00 2006

Extended Scan Results
----------------
Found possible virus: Backdoor:Win32/Hackdef.L in file "C:\Program
Files\Adobe\Adobe Help Center\Browser\es262-32.dll"

Results Summary:
----------------
Found Backdoor:Win32/Hackdef.L (detected generically)

Return code: 6
Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool Finished On Thu Nov 16
00:29:43 2006
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is this something to be concerned about?  Can it be removed or is it
something Adobe needs?
