    If this file is located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder, it should be harmless.

    BUT…

    Every time VS pings it, take a good look at details, see especially if this is a Command Line, or a “funny” folder with random characters in the path — this is malware behaviour.  Also, let VS push the file or a hash up to the Cloud for detailed analysis.

    Remember that VS is “path-aware”: it expects the good files to remain in their places of residence, regardless of how it is invoked.  Anything with “no fixed address” is likely to be malware 🙂
