I regularly use Rkill to scan my computer and it's been fine until now. It seems like Rkill found something in the Temp folder and it terminated the process associated with it. I was just clearing out my internet cache and temporary files before scanning with Rkill, so that may or may not have something to do with this. Please look at the log file below and let me know if this is an actual threat or just a false positive. Also, all of the scans I've done after this have been normal.
