Should I be worried about this?

Hello, I had my Wallpaper Engine software running and it crashed. At the same time F-Secure gave me a notification about "" and put a file named "WER.37fcc384-ec24-47c7-d80c6c38694.tmp" into quarantine.

I checked that WER is Windows Error Reporting, could it be that F-Secure thought the Windows program was Trojan or had similarities with one? Or could it be that a wallpaper I downloaded from the software from Steam has virus in it?

The file was in AppData/Local/Temp
