Hi I have recently discovered a trojan on my windows 10. I performed a clean install and ran various scanners and no virus has been found since
I'm still a bit suspicious of this file in the system32 folder

DESKTOP_(my account username) HistoryPrediction.bin

can anyone tell me if this is a normal file that keeps updating

thanks
:)

Hi mich,

That is a normal Windows 10 System32 file and ought to be left alone.

If your anti virus program gives you an alert about it, you ought to declare it a safe file.

I suspect it is something to do with Cortana Settings,

I don't have a DESKTOP_(my account username) HistoryPrediction.bin, in my system32 either

I have most of my cortana settings switched to 'Off', except Search online and include web results

Cortana can give you suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts & more 'Off'
Device search history Improve search results for on-device content using my device search history 'Off'
Search online and include web results 'On'
Web search history Improve web search results using my web search history from signed-in devices 'Off'


check which Cortana settings are 'On' or 'Off''

most likely to be linked with 'Device search history' & 'Web search history'

Good thought, Brett. I have Cortana turned off, but, I would have thought, Cortana or not, the file would still be there??

You should lock out historyprediction.bin in windows 10 Do not trust it. The PC will work find with out it. historyprediction.bin file is spying on you. And trying to prediction your every move you make on windows 10. Good luck.
