Hello everyone! It might be nothing and I might be making a big problem out of nothing, but it's always better safe than sorry, right? So I stumbled upon a folder in C:/Windows/Temp called frozen-genpy-27, and it looked really suspicious, although it was empty. I googled it multiple times but the search did not return anything, hence I am asking it here.

Since it was a Temp folder, I decided to delete it and look at what's going to happen. Shortly after my ESET Smart Security 4 turned off and I had to reboot the computer to get it to work again. The folder was gone and the anti virus was working fine, but the folder appeared again today. 


I had another question that I posted, which led me to the discovery of that folder. I am going to attach the link just in case, that question has more in depth information of what has been going on with my computer recently. Thank you in advance

So frozen-genpy-27 is not a virus, correct? I mean, the real question here is that after deleting that folder my anti-virus did something weird and told me that it practically turned off every kind of protection it had.
