I Ran the full scan on Malwarebytes, on a brand new install of Windows 10.   Malwarebytes flagged Expand.exe.  It's in the following folder C:\WINDOWS.OLD\WINDOWS\SYSWOW64\EXPAND.EXE.

I tried but could not remove this folder.     


This computer was accidentally given accessed to via TeamViewer to some scammer.    I reformatted the drive and  installed windows from an image on a USB thumb drive.  

Should I be concerned?


Thank you.

The above folder is a folder left after a feature update in windows. It is not harmful and Malwarebytes is just seeing a file in a location it is not used to.

If you do a disk clean it will be deleted.https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3012-open-use-disk-cleanup-windows-10-a.html
