You could try going into Safe Mode(F8) and search for files 'isass'.Their properties might be set to Hidden.Press Start->Help and Support->type in Hidden Files.When you find them change the property check boxs.
Reboot normally,search and delect all the 'bad' files.

Are you sure it's 'isass.exe' and not 'lsass.exe'? Do not delete it if it's the latter.

If it's 'lsass.exe', is it in your C:\Windows\System32 directory? If it is then it's an important system process. If it's anywhere else it's probably a virus. It is vital that you check into this before deleting any files.

If McAfee didn't pick it up, I'd say that it's a valid file.

It might be to do with the Hydra trojan!
