Hi, i wanted to check what was in my C: disk, when i came across an odd .ini file that wasn't there before called AVScanner.ini.
I've googled what it was and i am pretty sure it's some sort of malware, but i don't know how it got there i've that people get it from from those "windows is broken repair it with this too" but i haven't clicked it lately (the AVScanner.ini i think is new in the partition)

Cheers

An .ini file can be opened with Notepad to see what it is.
Right Click on the file and choose "Open With", then select Notepad.
Hopefully the text will give you a clue what it is.
Also, try running MalwareBytes (free) to see if it finds any bad stuff on your computer.
