New Malware cJ2BEK2s.exe Trojan

I ran a virus check today (McAfee), it picked up the trojan as above but under "status" it said "clean failed". I ran Superantispyware which picked it up and cleared it.
I ran McAfee again and it had gone.
I have looked on the web for this particular virus but cannot find any mention of it.
Does anyone know what it is?
The PC was all over the place when it was active running all kinds of error messages and prompting virus checks which could have been further viruses.
I knew not to click on any of these prompts because a few weeks ago my wife on her laptop clicked on a prompt which said "your computor is under attack run this virus check" unfortunately the PC crashed and had to be rebuilt.
My PC seems to be running fine now.

Don't worry about what it ws (there are too many of them to worry about) just be glad your malware program removed it easily.

Thanks for that, I am not in the habit of trawling dodgey sites and just wondered where it could have come from, as you say just gratefull.

they hack into normal web pages, then when you visit the innocent web page you pick up the virus.
