PeerNetworking folder question

Hello. I was doing a scan with Malwarebytes and an infected file was shown. The file was located in the PeerNetworking (c:\\Windows\serviceprofiles\localservice\appdata\roaming\peernetworking). I was just wondering if folder was meant to be on my system or was somehow put there by a virus because I have never been on a P2P site. Thank you.

Welcome to the Seven Forums
I have the same folder in the same place so it must be okay. You should quarantine the infected file.
Beyond that I don't know what to tell you.
