So, should I delete it, or restart my computer and see if its still there?

After thinking on it for a minute and looking at this app I have, that seems to be a Temp file of some sort, assuming that is the extension too right?!
Here is a screencap that leads me to believe this:

Yeah, assuming its an extension. But I just restarted my computer and its still there. If its a temp file, shouldnt it have deleted itself?

i think frameworks right about this one, i`m sure if you just deleted it their wouldn`t be no probs. If you wanna double check though why not use a free online virus checker, i`m pretty sure McAfee have got one on their site.
Yea if its a temp file it should of been deleted automatically but programs don`t all ways work perfectly, have a look in your main temp foulder, 9 times outta 10 you`ll find old files which have been left their by programs.

I deleted it, and so far there hasn't been any problems. Maybe it was just some stray temp file...

You mean to tell us when right click on a file in the option bar dosent say scan with what ever your A.V. is named. you should get another A.V...............Suggestion
No, I havent scanned it yet. Im using the antivirus software that came with my computer, and I dont think it scans files.
What the hell are you talking about now your jumping to conclusions .

No, my av program is stupid. I right click a file and all it shows is power archiver functions, plus copy, paste and all of that. Im using the version of McAffe AV that came with my computer
I have Norton AV, but I haven't installed it yet...

I noticed sometimes the virus scans can miss some viruses. So i like to double check the computer with an online virus scan. My weapon of choice is http://housecall.trendmicro.com/hous...start_corp.asp it has always helped me out when i needed it.

($k,$n)=@ARGV;$m=unpack(H.$w,$m.\"\\0\"x$w),$_=`echo \"16do$w 2+4Oi0$d*-^1[d2%
,$_)while read(STDIN,$m,($w=2*$d-1+length($n||die\"$0 [-d] k n\\n\")&~1)/2)
