Recently while browsing the web Avira alerted me to a file attempting access it wasn't allowed to and clicked the "remove file" button thinking it was taken care of (Naieve of me, I know). Continued browsing with no other alerts. However, today, it appeared again with the same file name TR/Patched.Ren.Gen2 (as stated in the thread title). Now, note that I primarily browse using sandboxie since a popup annoyance a few weeks ago, and both times this alert was triggered was while sandboxie was open. After the first time I purged sandboxie and did not get the alert again for five days. I purged sandboxie again after today's scare. However, I'm still worried. Since then I have ran multiple scans and they have all turned up little to nothing. Scans including TDSSkiller, HijackThis (I need to check the log again but I recognized most of the file paths and program associations), MBAR, MBAM, Avira, and HitmanPro. I have checked my processes and found nothing really suspicious. Another thing to note is that the alert indicated that the file in question was located in the temporary file folders and I purged those as well with CCleaner as well as doing a registry cleanup. Another thing to note is that my computer has been acting normally since the popup issue was cleared and after the first detection of this file.
I hate to ask after doing all that but paranoia begs me to inquire further as to whether I need to delve further or if the problem has been resolved. I apologize for the wall of text and am grateful for anyone that takes the time to read over this and/or reply. For all I know it could be a false positive from another scheduled scan running, but I want to err on the side of caution.
Edit: I forgot to mention I am running Windows 8.1.
Edit 1/8/2014: After a bit of thinking and a little searching. I think this might have been a false positive generated by scheduled scans with Ad-Aware. I had it installed as a second opinion of sorts to my usual anti-virus program Avira. Since if memory serves both detections were after a scheduled scan started. I will look more into this and see if that's the issue, If so, lock this thread and sorry for wasting anyone's time.
1/8/2014 edit 2: I did some testing and recreated the event, it WAS a false positive generated by a conflict between ad-aware and avira. it triggered every other scan during a quick scan. So ad-aware has been uninstalled. I don't know how to delete a thread, so if an admin could lock this please.
