Hello,

 

When I open the DOWNLOADS folder in file explorer in Windows 10, I see a file that is not supposed to be there.

 

The file is named:  恙䵥꒎੧﷬攅僲奄ꍥ鎌윤ҥ

 

I am unable to use McAfee to shred the file,  I am unable to delete the file.

 

I am logged in as administrator, yet it tells me that I need permission from the computer's administrator to make changes to this file.

 

How do I get rid of this file?

 

Your input is greatly appreciated.

There's some tools here to take ownership of the file, that way you will be able to delete it.

 

Personally I would be more worried about how the file got there, rather than just trying to get rid of it.

 

You may want to start a new topic in Am I Infected.

I've also had luck with Unlocker in these sort of instances.

available here; http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/unlocker.html

 

(just watch out for the embedded offerings when installing)


Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.

The Chinese characters used to give a name to the file, translates to ...

""This is the most common cause of the disease""

So....take TsVK's advice and open a new topic in Am I Infected

 

....and have the good people there run a check on your PC, just to be on the safe side.
