Unknown problem, Possible trojan. Please help

Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, E4500/2GB
Hi

My AVG has recently been popping up telling me 'Threat detected!' with a supposedly infected file of the name Ube.exe and tells me that the threat is a 'Trojan horse Generic19.AKEL'.
But every time I try to remove it tells me action interrupted by user. The thing is that this pops up every 30 seconds or so, even after scan and continuous attempts of removal and even when I try to remove it as a power threat it sticks .
The file is found c:\Windows\Temp\Ube.exe

the weird thing is that this seems to be the only issue this thing is causing me, no abnormal internet activity or performance issues.

please if someone could help me out it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Can you delete the file directly?

If not, try running a virus scan with Malwarebytes, its generally much better then AVG.

If its not broken, Fix it until it is

It was probably a downloader, which only ran once or something.

No problem though =]
