    I have only just stated using Solo as I have been using AVG. A scan of my computer found MSRDPCLI.EXE saying it is a BACKDOOR.IRCCONTACT.30

    I found the info on the web for MSRDPCLI.EXE and that is it a Microsoft file for Remote Desktop Connection. Solo is asking for me to clean the file - I renamed the file while I was going to check it out, but Solo still found it.

    A search of the internet gave me details for the BACKDOOR.IRCCONTACT.30 but there isn't anything that related it to the file MSRDPCLI.EXE.

    Here are the details for: Backdoor.IrcContact.30
    Malware Name : Backdoor.IrcContact.30
    Malware Type : Backdoor (A Backdoor is a program that uses a secret and/or undocumented means of getting into a computer system. Some software programs have backdoors for programmers to troubleshoot or change the program. Some backdoor programs test the system and phone home to allow for future attacks.)

    I don't want to get rid of the file as I know I want to use the Remote Desktop soon.

    I have tried quite a few online scanners, also Adaware, SpyBot etc but none of these found the same file, only Solo!

    Any advice on this please?

    Since making this post I found a great site mentioned in one of the threads:

    http://virusscan.jotti.org/

    I uploaded the file in question, MSRDPCLI.EXE, and nothing was found! So I am not so worried now, but will keep an eye on it!

    It's a riskware detection, nothing to worry.
