    A scan has found a file that i cant even find on google and i have no clue what it would be. it came up in a junk file sweep but i dont always trust to delete all that are found so i looked. I found one that was a letter off from what mine was which is yptBB43.tmp and google found with that started with a g not a y only. scanned with mbam and mse and got nothing. is there a site to look for this in more detail? was found in my appdata/local/Temp if that helps

    good thing about temp file is that you can delete them safely. They will be recreated next time if needed and if in use can't be deleted. Assuming it is not malware then if you are interested what has created it maybe monitor with MS Process Monitor
