windows 8 Malware detected: Windows Defender is taking action

Meaning: When the built-in Windows 8 antivirus program, Windows Defender, finds a potentially dangerous file on your computer, it lets you know with this message. Windows Defender then removes the file so it can’t harm your computer or files.

This particular notification looks identical on both the desktop and the Start screen; it always appears in the screen’s top-right corner.

Probable cause: A dangerous file — malware — probably arrived through e-mail, a flash drive, a networked computer, or a website. Windows is removing the file so it can’t do any harm.

Solutions: You needn’t do anything. Windows Defender has already caught and removed the evildoer
