cpuz136 driver malicious?

Hey there I've scanned my drivers with ESET and it says cpuz136 is unknown, google tells me it's malicous... if so how can I remove it?

"cpuz136" = "c:\users\thomas\appdata\local\temp\cpuz136\cpuz136_x64.sys"


Thanks in advance!

that version of CPUZ is old it could be a potential virus file use

MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials) and do a scan if you don't have a virus protection of your own

also a link to the latest Cpuz Download CPU-Z 1.66.1 - FileHippo.com

I've tried locating the file myself but it is not there.
ESET and MBAM do not detect anything MBAM Anti Rootkit doesn't detect anything aswell.
How can I remove the file?

Maybe clear the internet cache and clean the cookies that would be the other place because you didn't download anything yet right ?
