How did it get there? Someone installed something that inclued it.  Do users have Administrative priveleges to install software?  If yes, then users downloaded and installed something that included it.  If no, then the sysadmin installed somethnig that included it, or your systems got wormed.

What's the worse case scenario?  Reinstall the OS.  Probably not necessary unless it's a system that contains confidential information and/or important data.

Well the only thing I know of that was downloaded onto many computers was the logmein.com client to remotely access certain machines across a wan.

McAfee classified it as Adware, comes bundled when you installed other legit apps. It must've come with your logmein.com if that was the only apps you installed.
