    windows 8.1


    Hi Guys
    Over the last 2 or 3 days my antivirus program is notifying me up to 4 or 5 times a day of a suspicious download which up until writing this i have allowed the antivirus to remove what it seems to regard as a threat.
    The download i am talking about is:

    C:\Windows\SysWOW64\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\WebsteroidsServic e,exe

    Would anyone know whether it is safe to allow the download?
    Replies to this would be very much appreciated.

    First let me say that any program that you did not choose to download would be considered a threat ,even some we choose to download can be threats as well .
    Im not sure how good a program
    SPY-Hunter is ,thats the program in the link posted by Countmike ,but I always use the trusted Malwarebytes for issues like this .
    you can get the free version at
