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 ( http://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: 
 
Screenshot 1: https://ibb.co/dbGQOS
 
Screenshot 2: https://ibb.co/j3rs3S
 
Screenshot 3: https://ibb.co/eJ7X3S
 
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. 
 

The file came with Sony Vegas. But, strangely, as the installation for Sony Vegas completed, the file did not appear on my desktop until 15mins....

P.S. The file is deleted but I want to trace any "hidden files". I have enabled the show hidden file option already.
