  1. Hi. A few days ago, my bitdefender antivirus started detecting a threat named: application.coinminer.ge. The folder where the virus is located is C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\Low\IE. In this folder, the threat creates a folder with a file in it named stat[1].htm. - note the 1 is replaced by 2, then 3 and so on after each deletion by bitdefender. (I couldn't find out anything about this online.) I ran a malwarebytes scan but it didn't find anything, i even activated my 14 day free trial just in case it were to pick it up again, but it didn't. I also ran spyhunter5, which found some vulnerabilities but not this one. It keeps popping up about 5-10 times a day, at random times. I tried deleting everything in the folder as well as uninstalling internet explorer, which didn't help. I am not sure if this is a false positive or a real miner, so i would like to receive some advice and help. Thanks. PS: Here is a pic of the threat detection message: https://gyazo.com/36ce6742c84a6c18ed7f562c14753710
