    There seems to be mixed responses from a Google search as to whether it's a virus or not.  Have you tried removing it in Safe Mode?  Otherwise, it might be worth a scan with Malwarebytes as that can sometimes find things AV software doesn't.

    Would it be possible for you to upload the sample to our virus lab?

    It seems I lost a letter in name. It is gtSetup.exe, so I think it is a known one. I will try safe mode, when I am using that laptop again.

    I am only an F-Secure user (their home solutions).

    But you did not add some information about.

    For example, why F-Secure SAFE can not remove "gtsetup.exe"?

    - Item is detected, but removal process is rejected / denied / uncompleted?

    - Or item is not detected at all?

    - Or after removal - harmful item is reappeared then?


    If file is known and detected, but file is archived or zipped - then it can be a reason for ignoring deleting or removing it. More information about:

    And if so - to delete entire archive manually is an option.


    Otherwise all other replies are good suggestions with good advices.
