Hi,

I ran the following file on my computer:

link

Obviously the online scanner says it's a trojan, but I'm not sure if it's a false-positive or not. I haven't noticed anything suspicious and have scanned my computer with Avira, NOD32, and MBAM and none of them came back with anything. I'm not 100% sold on these results and was wondering if anyone can help me check out my PC to make sure it is clean for sure.

Thanks for any help.

{Mod Edit: LINK is safe, VirusTotal scan result~~boopme}

Yes this is an xp machine.

Avira was the program that found it in the archive. The file was extracted and ran and it installed and after that Avira and the other programs listed didn't find anything else besides the same archive.

Ok I would say that from your description,Avira has either put it into the Quarantine or Deleted Vault. Then it would be gone.
