The file was created 3 days ago on my computer... 8/28/13


My profile or admin profile do not have access to it. I can't touch it. MSE or Malwarebytes do not find it suspicious.... but I certainly do. Should I be worried? How do I investigate this further?

Just a guess...a temporary file/folder (I know that you said file but I see no file extension).


If you really want to delete it, try it from safe mode.


Or Unlocker.
