I am running Windows 8 x64.
Using a development tool created this log file. Chrome was launched from the dev tool to open it. But I cannot see it from Windows Explorer or Command Prompt. I have show all files / hidden files / system files turned on. It does not appear. I am concerned there may be a root kit. I have disabled UAC (put to bottom)
When the file got updated by the dev tool, I was able to refresh it and see it in chrome. I could also close chrome (fully) and reopen chrome and still see it from there. I just can't find it in the folder view or with the command prompt.
Chrome opens this: file:///C:/windows/system32/_impact.log
Can someone tell me if this is a likely a root kit, or is there something else going on here?
