I was looking through the files in my computer and I noticed a file that looks unusual to me. I'm not sure how it got there but it kind of worries me because its a bit suspicious. Its called TR/Dropper.Gen. I scanned my computer with my antivirus program, but it did not recognize it as a virus.


Is it harmful?   Thanks

Can you upload the file to https://www.virustotal.com and report the link of the analysis report here, I'll have a look.
