    ;) FYI...The files do not appear to be "bad".

    - This is not an exact match, but an MS KB search on those files turned up the fact that there is an "AutoUpdate" feature in the MSN client. 'Not sure what those *.exe files are used for, but if you don't mind turning off "AutoUpdate" (so the firewall won't complain), the instructions are in this MS KB hit:
