    Default STEC3 service a trojan?

    Last Thursday (?) my ZASS 8.0.015 determined that I have a trojan via windows\system32\stec3.sys
    However the file is digitally signed (ie not showing up in sigverif as a problem), and shows as "Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp. 1981-1999" under its properties. Also McAfee freescan reports no issues.
    Anyone else come across this? Is it a false positive?
    It is reported in a spyware scan as "Win32.Trojan.311296.E"
    Thanks,Colm.
    WinXP Pro (SP3)

    Small update ... just directed sigverif specifically to the \windows\system32 folder to search for "other files" and it shows STEC3.sys as NOT signed.
    I had thought it checked all system32 files
    on a
    default scan, but apparently not ...
    NOW I'm suspicious! :{
