Was it found in the Pagefile? (Pagefile.sys)

If so, it looks like it may be a False Positive, and nothing to worry about.

If you are worried, you could always delete and let Windows re-create the Pagefile...

I'm on Vista atm, so can't give you detailed info deleting the pagefile, but you'll find the settings in Control Panel > System > Advanced > ...... and there my memory lets me down I'm afraid!
