Every few minutes this gets flagged, Windows Defender quarantines it and then it comes back again.



It says:

AFFECTED ITEMS:

file: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Apple Inc\CloudKit\iCloudDrive\MMCS\tmpm-0x0000000000000001



and

file: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\Apple Inc\CloudKit\iCloudDrive\MMCS\tmpm-0x0000000000000002



Is this a real threat? How do I get rid of it? Offline scan did not help.



Thank you

I've had some infections identified in downloaded files, ended up making a list then locating and deleting those files to get rid of the problems.
