Windows 7: Suspicious file

22 Mar 2010   #1

Windows® 8 Pro (64-bit)
 
 
Suspicious file

OK. I need help.

There is an unknown file on the desktop which wont go. If I delete, it comes back if I refresh the desktop. When I right click on this file, there are only 3 options: Cut, Create Shortcut and Delete.

Name:  Capture.PNG
Views: 8
Size:  642.3 KB

I have scanned my computer with Hitman Pro, MBAM, Windows Defender and Norton 360 V4. None of them detects anything. Any idea what is this and how do I get rid off this file?



Thanks,
Dinesh.

Also, When I try to delete this file, it shows this message in German language. When I translated the message, it means, Please Do not Delete.

Try using Unlocker to delete it. It will attempt to end anything that's using it and delete it. I wouldn't mind taking a look at it for you if you can zip it/RAR it and attach.

Hi Dinesh,

good to hear you already solved this problem.
Maybe it's also good time for review your current security setup - If you had infection in your system that you shouldn't have...
