Every time I open up Internet Explorer, I get a pop up from Avira that says...


A virus or unwanted program 'HTML/Rce.Gen3' was found in file 'C:\Users\KathieReed\AppData\Local\...\server[1].htm'. 

Access to this file was denied.

Please select a further action:


I select remove and it pops back up a minute later.  I tried to find this file by going to my computer, c drive, users, kathiereed....but there isn't anything called AppData.  How do I stop this thing from popping up every minute?

Run a full system scan with:


If you are using Internet Explorer go to Tools->SmartScreen filter->report unsafe website when you receive such message.
