    It's a file that belongs to Realtek. What makes you ask about it being a virus?

    What I mean is what led you to even look for information on that file?

    Are you having any issues?

    So I guess you're checking runnng processes to see the files?

    Most keyloggers are installed stealth and are not going to be that easy to find. If you want, I can leave this open here for a Malware Specialist to do a thorough dive into the system to see if they come up with anything suspicious but even then there are no guarantees.

    It's likely a temporary file for installation of a program such as Mozilla Firefox but you have to check the location of the file and then right-click on it and select properties to see if it's signed by Mozilla or some other company. You can do that for every file you want to check.
