    About an hour ago the UAC has stopped a file from running, called "Update 38.exe" (with a space before the 38 ).

    It is located on

    C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low

    I can't find anything on the net about it, except a brief message
    (found HERE):

    "Found virus WORM_SWEN.A in file Update38.exe
    The file is deleted."

    McAfee Total Security, Malwarebytes and ESET Online Scanner say the file is clean.

    I'm unsure on what to do, does anybody know anything about this file? Is it a crucial Windows file or something?

    Please advice.

    Sorry if this is not the place to post; if so, please move the thread to the right place.

    Upload the file to Virustotal.

    Never heard about it, thanks for the tip.

    The file is apparently clean, but I wouldn't let anything run without knowing what it is about. Deleted. ;)
