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?

 

Thanks!

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.
