System Win7 SP1 64 bit, up to date.
UAC on - regular users and administrative users.
I am logged on as administrator.
Got a potentially unwanted program (PUP) warning from Emsisoft Anti-Malware “C:\Users\Kathy\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\1.mp3 detected: Trojan.MP3.Tobfy (A)”
So I try to look at the file (PUP)*, using explorer to navigate; When I double click on AppData I get the following message:
“ You don't currently have permission to access this folder.
Click continue to permanently get access to this folder. “
QUESTION - Will I harm (have I cause it is done) the system or end user (owner?) of this folder if I proceed and gain access to the folders (folders because this repeats as I drill down).
e.g. will their user experience change any / significantly because administrator now has full control over these folders?
Any comments on the wisdom of this protocol or preferred alternatives is appreciated.
* My main motivation is to upload to virustotal - not just look at the file.
