I assume the Dat's are updated on Mcafee, and that you have enabled Heuristics scanning? Even the old Mcafee's had heuristics- do not use "default files" scan ALL FILES, all Compressed too. If open relay is a concern, do a "netstat -a" on the cmd line, see if someone is trying to relay. Nslookup anything you don't think is legit, and then block those IP's with your firewall, or download the free version of ZA. http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/zap_za_grid.jsp
Unhook the netowrk connection to see if it's coming in through the NIC. Try TDS3 or 4- find them here:

If you want to find and remove your trojan, then use this free online Trend Housecall scan:

Some viruses can't be removed by housecall. If so use the Trend Micro system cleaner:

If you want to secure your workstation in the future, consider to purchase OfficeScan:
