There is no way to tell if that is a virus, or was created by one, or if it's a valid file, just by looking at a picture.

Since the file is so big, I recommend that you first scan the stick/file with your security suite, then you can copy the file on the computer and add it to a Zip archive (this way it's won't to damage to your computer if it's an infection) and remove it from the stick.

If the file is recreated on the stick, you may want to double-check both the stick and your computer. If the file is not recreated, then you can also delete it from the computer.

Take note that, while suspicious, this could still be a valid file, so do not delete it unless you are positive you don't need it.

I formatted many the stick many times. But it recreates again and again with different file names. And after few days my files won't open which is stored inside it. Moreover avg antivirus didn't detect it as a virus.

Maybe like u said I should zip the files before storing into it. That may not harm my files and would open in future.

Thanks for your opinion........
