Windows 7: Avast just found this "Win32:Adloader-AC [Trj]"

Avast just found this "Win32:Adloader-AC [Trj]"

And calls it a trojan horse.

When I try to move it to the chest it says there is not enough space on the disk. What? how can that be?

Is there a chest size setting? Im not really sure what to do with this.

Should I delete it permanently or put it in the trash?

Is it a false positive?

Don

I dont have any such folder. That's an obvious virus. Delete it.

After researching it on avast and others, there is a lot of talk about it being a harmless Ram memory dump file. Still not sure if I should delete it.

Unless you have recently had a system crash and want to use the "memory dump" (if, in fact that is what it is) to debug the problem, I would delete it.

Even if there was a system crash, the memory.dmp files would be under
C:\Windows\Minidump folder.

Point of order -

The memory dump file(s) will be located at this user definable location -

Only if the user has changed it manually.
