    AVG found a trojan on my C:
    CountrySelection
    or
    Country Select
    pctptt.exe
    Country selection for a PCtel HSP56 based modem. Often found in OEM (Dell,Compaq, HP, etc) systems for their modems included on the motherboard or as a separate card. Once you've set the modem up to the chosen country it's not required.

    So, false positive I think. But I wonder is there other M$ feature I should consider as a trojan horse...(rhetorical question)
