Are u sure that ur antivirus is properly installed and is updated? Try to scan the folder that contains that file or even run a complete system scan. If ur antivirus still doesn't detect it, then perhaps its just a normal file. Anyway, does ur laptop show any sign of being infected by virus? If not, just leave it there or delete it, coz some viruses r harmless. Cheers

Hi there,

Make sure that you have running only one Anti-Virus in your machine. Running more than one Anti-Virus, may affect your machine.

You can go for Avast or Avg.
After scanning your system, try cleaning Malwares, adwares etc..
You can go for Malwarebytes, Remove it pro, Trojan remover, Hitman pro etc.. After Cleaning your system with tose applications, clean your system using CCleaner.

XxshaninaxX - Avira and Malwarebytes is enough to protect home PC. You can be patient with this. Installing more and more antiviruses will make it worse.
