Found one hidden file today 2/4. Not sure if it is a legitimate Windows file or if I went someplace and became attached to a bad file. I started a scan using Avira, offline before I left for work this morning, something I do daily. I reviewed the scan file after I got off and took notice of the hidden object line. Looked online for information about this and while reading the information, keylogger popped into my mind because I do not have any secured protection vaults or anything like that on this system. Confused, so can someone please assist me in determining if this is a good thing or a bad thing? If it is a bad thing, please direct me to the proper forum to fix this problem.
Excuse me, I need to take an aspirin.
