OK, this is confusing. After a full scan, Avast reports a threat in the following file:

   C:\WINDOWS\Temp\_avast_\unp246044957.tmp
   Severity: High
   Threat: Rootkit:hiddenfile

If I try to apply an action, I get the following:

   Action: Move to Chest
   Error: The request is not supported (50)

   Action: Delete
   Error: The system cannot find the file

Is this perchance a file that was identified earlier by Avast and put in the "chest" and then deleted?

Thanks!

looks as the temp file from an avast webscan


Try cleaning your temp files and scan again
