    I should've been more careful and checked the extension of it but here's the story. I was downloading videos from YouTube and once downloaded, I obliviously clicked it. It's had no effect on my PC so far. I'm worried it will have an effect sooner or later.

    I'll provide the link to the site (If that's any help) and a few details.

    Site of suspected malware: hxxp://www.clipconverter.cc/

    PC is custom built

    TSG SysInfo Details: OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
    Processor: AMD A8-6600K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics, AMD64 Family 21 Model 19 Stepping 1
    Processor Count: 4
    RAM: 7360 Mb
    Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 8570D, 768 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 1907371 MB, Free - 1588583 MB;
    Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC., A88XM-A
    Antivirus: Norton AntiVirus, Updated and Enabled

    Is there any way to trace the installation path of this file?

    I've tried going to the properties of the fake .mp4 file and denying all the permissions it had. That did not work.

    Any help is greatly appreciated
