My computer was infected with a virus. I scanned it with AVG and cleared it. It left me with a blank file that I cannot delete. When I right click on it, the only options I'm given are
Start without Add on and
Create Short Cut.
The file has no name and no
delete context menu option. I cannot move it to another folder. It does not show itself in
cmd. I have no idea how to delete it. Here is what it looks like on my desktop:
I tried Unlocker, but the blank file does not have "delete" or "unlock" options. I also tried booting to safe mode, but that did not give me a "delete" option either.
Again, the problem is that the file does not offer me an option to delete it. I can drag it to the Recycle Bin, but nothing happens when I do, not even a warning. I know it is related to some sort of virus/trojan. I tried running various antivirus programs including AVG, but the file still stays on the desktop. If I go to
C:\Users\*someUser*\Desktop, the file is not there. It's only on the desktop as in the desktop of the computer screen.
[EDIT 2] In File Explorer, I see this:
I searched for the key and found it in regedit. Should I delete it?
