Hello there. I wanted to get some advice about a file. I just opened my D Drive that i store my data on and there was a weird folder with a bunch of characters. It worried me so i scanned it with Comodo, Malwarebytes and Zemana. Everything came back clean but i am still concerned. I check on VirusTotal and it is clean according to that but there is 5 down votes and 2 up votes. I'm just kind of worried that my system may be infected. I think it's fine but i wanted to ask.
The file in question is called Install.exe located in a folder with the name 906e27ca3fafc4601a. I checked the details of the file and it is digitally signed by Microsoft but i don't understand how or why it got here. It does say Visual Studio 2008 so i am thinking it's safe and i'm just overreacting. I do have Visual Studio 2017 RC installed but how and why would this file randomly show up on a drive i never installed Visual Studio to. The other thing is its from 2009. I don't think Visual Studio 2017 would be installing a file that old. Maybe i'm wrong and just reading into it too much but i wanted some advice.
I have scanned my system with Comodo and the other apps i mentioned. Everything is coming back clean but again i just wanted to get some advice. How can i verify this is a safe file without running it?
