I understand that mrt.exe should be in c:\\windows\system 32.  I found standing by itself as follows, f1be32f8d41e31db2445 when I put my cursor over it, it said that it was mrt.exe.  Can I drag and drop it back into system 32 or can I delete it?

Run a scan with your antivirus or malwarebytes if anything is suspicious get it fixed immedialy.  You can also try scanning it on virustotal to see what AVs think of it.

I have done several scans over the last few days. Neither malwarebytes or microsoft security essentials caught anything.  Virustotal has a 32mb limit and the file in question is 89.9 mb's.  So I think I will take old rocker advice which I got from the link that was provided and just delete it.  I now think that it probably no problem.  thanks to you all for your input i appreciate it.
