i have windows 7

i realized the mistake after i opened it

i ran mawarebytes on the whole system found nothing

i ran my kasprsky on whole system found nothing

both also show that the file isnt a virus.

i ran combofix didnt see anything out of the ordinary.

no popups, slowdowns or anything.

can i send this file to you so you can further check it ?

also send it to kaspersky support they never got back
