Presumably this virus was caught using Windows, and not Linux? I'm pretty sure this is not going to deliver anything, but as a precaution lets check for infection inside Linux.

1. Open a terminal in Mint, and run the folliowing to download and install CLAM antivirus and the GUI interface:

sudo apt-get install clamav clamtk
2. Now check that the database is up-to-date:

sudo freshclam
Locate the item called Virus Scanner, and run a scan of your system (note that the GUI interface will be marked as outdated, you can ignore that). If it comes up clean, we can cross off an infection in Linux.

CLAMAV screen capture shown below so you know what you are looking for.
