Can a .tmp file be a virus/trojan?


At each login I get the message that a virus is removed. It is a generic trojan 6667379 and the file is s1esa5s57og8ghga9.tmp in the Temp directory. I wonder whether a .tmp file itself can be a virus. If it is seen as a virus than "someone" should use this .tmp file as a virus or rename it to a .exe, so shouldn't this "someone" be removed? Or can I ignore this message?

    "Generic" is generic, thus may not be virus in reality, upload that TMP to


    or, try to scan your computer with e.g. rootkit and virus and spyware scan
