Karma! I downloaded a potential virus . The first thing that tipped me off was that after I downloaded the downloadv6.exe to the desktop... It was invisible. I tried enabling invisible files but no success. Okay I know I deserve this but please help, I promise I won't do it again >.<.
Also, is this file actually a virus? Some people on youtube have stated that it is a false positive but I have 11 virus programs (via URL scanning tool on novirusthanks.org) telling me its a virus...
hXXp://www.mediafire.com/?m21jnxywym3 [placed XXs instead of TTs so it wouldn't link people]. Anyway that's the link to the download, not the direct .exe itself.
Could someone confirm if it is a virus... and if it is of what kind it is..?
And finally, if it really is a virus how can I remove it ?
Please help I do audio work and lots of online purchases... I don't want to get credit card information or any work stolen...
EDIT: here's the scan log from NoVirusThanks.org

By the way, I'm using Windows 7 64-bit Professional. I've tried using SuperAntiSpyware and ASquared in safe mode to scan but they haven't found it. I'm confused why the online scanner would find it but once it was on my computer it would not find it...
