Hi Manusia123,

You have that on your computer? Or you want to report a possible suspicious file?
As seen from the VT results it could be a false positive and it looks like that,
for the file is flagged because of the protection used - xPack. Only reported by ByteHero.

Non-system processes like deleteme1.exe originate from software you installed on your system.
Here a QuickTime Plugin.
Here you find all appropriate information about it and how to interprete what it does:

No Manusia123,

I do not think there is anything wroing with that file, just the protection packer generically flagged by an av solution. Probably a false positive, flagged as a virus but a false find so to say. I agree with you that Quicktime had a lot of security issues in the past and you are better of with an alternative. So the uninstall is your decision and not a bad one, then you have no further use of DeleteMe1.exe also and can safely delete it,
