In my recycle bin there is a folder entitled 'tmpOTAUpdate'. If I empty the recycle bin (even using CCleaner full deletion), it reappears after a few seconds, after a few more seconds the file has replicated itself. The file continues replicating.I've done done a full Kapersky scan (nothing detected.) I think the file got on my laptop after I transfered some files from my work comp to mine via a usb memory stick.
Any advice appreciated
