What antivirus you're using ? Select there to delete that file. If it can,the object(trojan) will be deleted.

Do you have the program installed already ? If not, better you dont install it . If it is not installed yet, scan the installer/program folder with Malwarebites' Anti Malware .

But if you have already installed it, have a full system scan using both your installed antivirus program and Malwarebites' Anti Malware .

If the object really contains a trojan of a particular nasty variety, it's not always possible to remove it and in a worst case scenario, you'd have to do system restore or worse, a clean reinstall.

Personally,I wont do that. You can't be sure that the object will be deleted after starting the program. Also it can infect and other files(depending from the virus)

+1 ! Moreover, it might corrupt your BIOS, too !

One bummer that I have noticed is that reputable software vendors are placing trojans in their software for the fact of tracking what has happened to them and who has downloaded them in case of being hacked themselves. I know of one who does it all the time, you really have to be choosy about where the software comes from, I don't download anything that doesn't come from the software vendors site itself and I definitely don't like being redirected which is shady to say the least. These days are a very sinister world we live in you have be careful.
