Anyone else get this icon on their desktop? I know that AVCare is a virus/spyware of some sort, but there is nothing else on my system other than this icon, which of course I deleted.
I think what happened, the rogue got in (all rogue installers are randomized and hard for antivirus to detect)
Then it started, but ESET deleted its main .exe file (such as AVcare.exe)
so then the program wont run.
I recommend doing a scan with malwarebytes anti-malware
