Hi and welcome to the forums.

That's a temp file and could very well be a heuristic hit by our scanner. But maybe not.

Download TFC from the link below, it is a temp file\folder cleaner.


Save it to your desktop.

Print these instructions. Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs... including your browser!

Double click on TFC.exe to run it.

TFC will begin cleaning up the "temp" files... it may take only a few seconds or it could be several minutes, depending on the amount of temp files found.

If prompted to reboot... click Yes.

Then update and rescan the system, see if it is detected.

If you're not experiencing any other malware symptoms, then you may very well be in the clear.

Ran TFC. Performed new scan. No detections. No other symptoms of malware infection.
Sounds like you may be ok then.

Moving this from False\positive forums.
