    the msagent.exe is called microsoft agent. it is a valid file. you can go to and type in msagent and get more detailed info about what it used for. but to make sure its clean with your av - scan it! As most malware and others tend to have look alike's - i.e. msagent vs MSagent etc. hope this was helpful!
