Detecting Deleted File?

(1/3) > >>


I've ran many anti-malware software like Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, ESET, Windows Defender, and MSERT. A while ago I found a malware file called "System.exe" inside the Local/Temp folder and I deleted it.

Today, I ran RogueKiller and it detected that same "System.exe" file that I should've deleted a while ago. RogueKiller detected this, but when I tried actually finding it's file location manually, it was no where to be found. I've set my computer up so that I should be able to see all hidden files as well, so I shouldn't have been able to miss it. The other antiviruses I've ran didn't detect it a second time after I already deleted it so I think it should have already been dealt with. Any ideas if this is a false positive? For what it's worth, after I deleted the file using RogueKiller, when I ran it again, it didn't detect it.

To summarize in order of what I did:
I ran Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, ESET, Windows Defender, and MSERT and it detected and deleted "System.exe" in Local/Temp/ (and I could actually locate and find this file).
I ran Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, ESET, Windows Defender, and MSERT again, and nothing was detected.
A few week pass
I run the above again and nothing is detected once more.
I then ran RogueKiller, and it detected "System.exe", claiming that it was in Local/Temp/ like last time, but I could not find anything in local temp this time.

Do you guys have any ideas why RogueKiller detected an already-deleted file the first time? Was it perhaps a false positive? Thank you!
