So basically what is Exµs? I just recently saw this on my Desktop after installing Sony Vegas from Amazon... When I right click on the file, and then open it's file location, and enabled the "Show hidden files" it just shows it's icon along with a a Google Chrome icon which when you open it it directs me to a "suspicious" site called ( hxxp://piratexus.webs.com/) where it has a front cover of a guy holding a gun...Not sure what the internet explorer icon is but I do not want to open it. I proceeded and delete those files but I am pretty sure there are more hidden items scatter elsewhere. (Screenshots below)
I have uploaded the Exµs desktop file onto Virustotal and it has came out clean EXCEPT, Tencent has said this file is dangerous (Screenshots below) Can someone please help me out? I am unsure what to do now? As stated above, I have deleted the files.
Also, I have proceed and scanned with Malwarebytes, Junkware tool, Windows Defender and Adwcleaner and no issues found....
Here are the screenshots:

Update: So I typed in the "Exµs" word on Google and I saw that there is a page called virustracker where it tracks virus I think. Anyways, it had a virus listed here https://virustracker.net/files?filter=I&page=33. If you can't see it, please use the find method.
So scared :( .

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
