My avast found an infected file listed in the title. I don't know if its a false positive or not. I'm still running windows xp on this computer and have ran malwarebytes in addition to an avast scan but both of which found no infections.


This is what the file's properties say:
Original file name: igfxtray.exe
Original folder: C:\WINDOWS\system32
Size of file: 94208
Virus Description: Win32:Dropper-gen [Drp]
